Our Journey Heritage Project
Many early South Asian migrants to Scotland are dying, taking their personal histories with them. The project will aim to record many of those memories before they are lost and to celebrate the history and achievements of Scotland`s South Asian community. Our Journey Heritage Project would like to collect memories of life in South Asia, experiences of migrating to the UK (Scotland) since the 1940's and adapting to life in Scotland. It will explore the different ways that migration affects personal identity. The project will also document the changing patterns of life of Scotland's South Asian community and will explore their integration in the community through a multi-faceted approach that includes themes of employment, practice of one's faith, social inclusion, choice of accommodation and areas where early migrants chose to settle. Eventually the project hopes to build an archive of resources to examine this migration through varied media such as storytelling, art, images, sound and videos.
