We’re planning the next stage of Different Moons. Shamshad Khan (above) is devising a new series of workshops to take to local schools and other groups. Arry Nessa is finishing the transcriptions of our 2014 interviews with first generation immigrants from Bangladesh and Pakistan and then we’ll begin a new round of interviews.
All of this is in preparation for publication of a book of poetry by participants in the project, and a CD of a selection of interviews. This will be completed at the end of 2015, and the final full archive will be placed in local libraries and regional archives.
In the meantime we’ve placed a record of the 2014 project on the Horse + Bamboo website. If you want look go to:
…to see photos and read more about the workshop and interview programme, and
…to find out more about the Different Moons exhibition at the Whitaker.
