‘Changing Spaces Trading Places’ was a Heritage Lottery Funded project as part of the ‘All Our Stories’ initiative. The project was co-ordinated and hosted by Charnwood Arts and explored the cross cultural and inter-generational legacy of forced and economic migration in the city of Leicester and Leicestershire and in particular the textile trade. It explored industry, commerce, settlement, domestic life, trade and the triangle of relations between India, Africa and the UK.’ The project resulted in the training of heritage volunteers, a series of large scale banners for exhibition, a printed book and a website.
