Hathern - People Making Places

This book, originally created in 2015, depicts a portrait of the village of Hathern, which is located just north of Loughborough in Leicestershire. The book has been created by interns from National Cheng Kung University, Taiwan and the text was written by Terry Allen from Charnwood Arts in 2002 for the original People Making Places project.   Using a mixture of history, statistical information and photographs taken by the interns (outsiders to the village), the book provides a unique vignette of life in the village past and present.

The Rangoli magazine was developed to expand the work of the Charnwood Arts’ Kala Kahani project that aimed to “chronicle unique journeys and bring light to underexposed, raw South Asain Talent”.

Published in spring 2011, this edition of rangoli starts with the poem by Rita Purkayastha:

‘The calling of birds Inside,

String the heart only With love                    

As they dance in divine ecstasy In the in nite treasure

Of the soul.’
