Asian Women & Cars: The Road to Independence Exhibition

Over the past few months, I've been busy working on my brand new art commission called Asian Women & Cars: Road to Independence. I'm super excited because it launches in under two weeks!

I've had the pleasure of speaking to first generation South Asian women who generously shared their stories about driving and how it changed their lives.

You can see and hear some of these stories in a brand new film being made including these stories, to form part of a installation exhibition for Blast Photo Festival 2019.

Those of you who know my work, I LOVE working with communities and telling hidden stories - particularly about the South Asian communities and working class stories which are often overlooked. By the mainstream and by our own communities.

I'd love for you to come and see the film and exhibition which launches on 25th May - 29th June.

As a British-Asian woman, I see and appreciate the sacrifices of my mothers generation. These are the hidden heroes who I am celebrating in this new work. These are the women who paved the road to independence, not just for themselves, but for future generations of Asian women like me.

Dates 24.05.2019 – 29.06.2019

Opening times: Wed - Sat: 11AM - 4PM

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

Asian Women & Cars is commissioned by Multistory for Blast Photo Festival and generously funded by Arts Council England #CreativeCase#CultureMatters
