South Asian Heritage Nottingham is dedicated to collecting, preserving and celebrating the histories of people of South Asian descent in Nottingham. The collection promotes the teaching, learning and understanding of South Asian peoples’ contribution to Nottingham and provides an accessible permanent record of the richness of the South Asian experience in Nottingham.
The Group is a collective of people, both men and women, from the broad South Asian diaspora across Nottingham (and Nottinghamshire). The South Asian diaspora in Nottingham includes people from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, as well other South East Asian countries such as Malaysia, Singapore, Fuji, African countries such as Kenya, Uganda, South Africa and Mauritius, and Caribbean islands such as Jamaica and Trinidad. This backdrop provides a rich texture of stories reflecting people’s history, migration, religion, and a number of social issues. We will explore these projects and on this website over time.
