LEEDS BME (Black and Minority Ethnic) housing association Unity Homes and Enterprise has announced a major exhibition showcasing the ground-breaking contribution of the Windrush Generation.
A limited number of guests were invited to a scaled down preview of the exhibition at Unity Business Centre in Chapeltown on Tuesday to mark Windrush Day 2021.
Delivered in partnership with Leeds Trinity University, ‘The Windrush Project’ exhibition features a series of video interviews with local Windrush reformers, together with a photographic display illustrating the growth and diversity of Leeds Windrush businesses and their positive impact on local communities.
The films were produced by Leeds Trinity’s final year journalism students under the guidance of the University’s Senior Professional Practice Fellow and Broadcast Journalism Programme Leader Katherine Blair.
The exhibition will be open to the public between 10am and 3pm from 20 July until 15 December, subject to government guidance around COVID-19 restrictions eased.
