Hidden Heritages Cambridgeshire is an intergenerational oral history project, with diverse South Asian communities in Cambridgeshire, led by Hadithi C.I.C.
It commemorates two 2022 anniversaries: the 50th anniversary of South Asian expulsion from Uganda, and the 75th anniversary of partition and independence.
Hidden Heritages trains young people in oral history techniques, empowering them to collect and preserve memories from their elders, on the themes of belonging, identity and migration.
This exciting project is made possible through The National Lottery Heritage Fund, our thanks to National Lottery players.
Our partners at the Museum of Cambridge published this blog in June 2022.
Earlier in the same month, we featured on That's TV, on Freeview 7, and in the Cambridge Independent. Click here for the hard copy article by the Cambridge Independent.
Dr. Maya Parmar also talked to ITV news in August 2022, about the anniversaries and their importance. Check out the clip.
