'The Journey - A Changing Southampton' is a Heritage Lottery funded project that will last for 18 months.
It will tell the people's story - those who made ‘The Journey’ from the Indian sub-continent, either directly or via other countries (including Uganda), to Southampton.
We will record Oral Histories, learn about individual experiences and explore how Southampton has changed because of the heritage of its diverse citizens.
As the project progresses we will be creating radio shows and podcast episodes, undertaking historical research - all culminating in a permanent exhibition at the Sea City Museum!
Local colleges will also be using our recordings and research to produce more exciting creative outputs.
