Posted: 12 Jan 2015

We created history on Saturday 10th January 2015, not only did we create the first archive for our community, the first on-line forum for our community but we also created the First ever exhibition to be on display at  The New Library of Birmingham, for us this was a proud achievement.

It was unveiled by the Lord Mayor of Birmingham Cllr Shafique Shah and Khalid Mahmood MP, also in attendance were interviewees of the project, elected representatives and community members.

We had international media in attendance so that this ground breaking project had the recognition it deserved, with TV and newspaper reports going out to over a 160 countries including Azad Kashmir, Pakistan.

Participants of the project were acknowledged for their contribution and thanked for being a part of this history making project.

Basharat Dad thanked all the team who helped put this together, Hansen Palm,  Janaid Khan, Snouber Sharif, Christel Rogers, all the volunteers and most importantly Abdul Ghaffar, who played a huge role in making this happen.
