Here to Stay Exhibition Opening, Saturday 15 June 2019

Thanks to all those who joined us at the University of Warwick's Oculus Building (map here) on the 15th of June, 2019 between 14:00 and 16:00 for the opening of the 'Here to Stay' Exhibition. Documentary photographer Inès Elsa Dalal's beautiful portraits, commissioned by the Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust, were accompanied by a display of historical documents and images at the Modern Record Centre, exploring the experiences and contributions of BAME people to British life across the twentieth century. Co-curator of the exhibition, Professor Roberta Bivins, a specialist in the history of immigration in Britain, was on hand to explore the intertwined history of the Windrush Generation and the NHS, and a panel of postgraduate students shared their research on related topics. There was plenty of time for questions and lively discussion afterwards, over light catering, as we raised a glass to the Windrush Generation and their many contributions to the NHS, public services and British life here in the Midlands and across the UK.
