Asian Women & Cars: The Road to Independence is a brand new multimedia exhibition commissioned by Multistory and will open at Blast Photo Festival 2019. 


It celebrates the lives and experiences of first generation South Asian migrant women living in the UK.  Using oral histories, film, photographs and sound, Dawinder Bansal explores the relationships between the women, driving and their cars. The installation will highlight the positive impact of these stories on future generations of British Asian women who now benefit from the sacrifices of the first generation who battled against patriarchy and traditional family structures to gain independence.

Exhibition dates: 25th May - 29th June 2019. 

Location: The British Muslim School, Latifiah Fultali Complex, Lodge Road, West Bromwich, B70 8NX. 

Opening times: Wed - Sat: 11AM - 4PM

The artist of this project, Dawinder Bansal is continuing to gather photos and stories about Asian women & their cars - past and present from around the world.


There are hundreds of fantastic stories and pictures which are hidden away. We would like to gather your images to feature on our website and within a brand new exhibition in 2020.
