Migrant legacies, identity and experience
Screening + panel discussion + live performance
Saturday 11 August 4pm – 6pm

This event will begin with a screening of the project’s film on Indian migration followed by a panel discussion on the ‘Brown’ experience in Britain, identity and the legacy of migration for 2nd and 3rd Generation British South Asians. The presentation will be accompanied by a panel discussion and end with a live performance. 

Join us in an enthralling discussion with Dr Vimal Patel, Shirin Shar and Seetal Kaur, exploring what it means to be 'Brown' and British. 71 years on from Indian independance, what has been the impact of migration for 2nd and 3rd generation British South Asians? What defines our experience and sense of identity in a 21st Century Brexit Britain?
