When The Snow Melts

27 September 2019 - 31 December 2019

New Art Exchange

Launch event: 26 September 2019, 6PM - 9PM

Nearly four million Indians were volunteers in the British Army during the two World Wars. The Greats Wars were truly global events, yet the process of public remembrance is often performed through the prism of national identity. This thought-provoking show draws from the personal histories of local Muslim families, and archival material to pose questions about the process of war memorialisation, empire and its interconnections.

This exhibition is part of the Muslim Memory Project charting the stories of Nottingham's Muslim communities involved in World War II, and funded by the Heritage Fund.
