A voyage into the past

23 November, 2017, 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Free

Join us for a workshop exploring what an archive does and the importance of holding records as collective memory. There will be an opportunity to view and handle original documents that refer to the life of the Somali seamen that lived in East London.

You will then be invited to do a ‘Hido Raac ’ with Numbi arts, a walking odyssey exploring the Somali presence and living histories of East London. The heritage walk will set off to explore the entangled, enveloped, co-constitutive narratives of commerce, culture and colonialism between Somali peoples and the city.

This event is in partnership with Numbi Arts and the Refugee Council Archive.


This event is part of the series Healing through archives.
