Archiving British-Somali Heritage

I’ve been chosen as one of the Mentors for a fantastic new project by Numbi Arts titled: “Coming Here, Being Here” which provides training to volunteers from Tower Hamlets to learn how to archive British-Somali Presence and Heritage in East London (particularly Tower Hamlets). Below is a photo from their opening event in which I was asked to talk about a series of photos that I took of my grandmother and how I used photography to archive her story. This project runs until February 2018 – more details to come.
