Our aim is to capture, share and preserve the personal stories of Newham’s Windrush Generation and their descendants. Windrush: Our Stories, Past, Present and Future will provide the opportunity to create and implement activities and events with our Windrush population, giving them a platform to share their stories. We want to highlight the stories and experiences of the past, the impact of them today and preserve those stories for future generations.
We want our Windrush community to have a voice, we want our young people to engage with and learn from our elders, the wider community to gain a deeper understanding of those that helped rebuild Britain, and we want to commemorate and celebrate their positive contributions.
We are particularly keen to collect project outputs such as oral histories, photographs, films, and objects for inclusion in Newham’s archives.
