Final chance to see Changing Bradford exhibition

Alas, all good things come to an end, including the Changing Bradford exhibition at Impressions Gallery, which closes on Saturday 2nd November, so if you haven't already been to see it, now is your final chance. The exhibition has attracted families from all over Bradford - and beyond! We have had some wonderful comments from visitors:

“ I adore this exhibition! I think it’s absolutely awesome, coming from a Pakistani background myself, its both inspiring / powerful / influential to see the images and information on paths of the people who are of a South Asian background living in Bradford. I saw the images from outside the door and instantly I was drawn into the exhibition. Also I was jealous I missed the workshops! This is by far my favourite exhibition.”

We are hoping that the exhibition will have a second lease of life and will be hung on public display at a local community centre. We will also continue to distribute copies of the publication to schools, libraries and community centres free of charge. (Postage may be payable.)

Dr Mohammed Salam, CEO of COEMO (featured right), was amongst the first to see the exhibition, which showcases portraits and interview extracts from 21 oral history interviews.
