Our current exhibition uses archives from the Modern Record Centre's collections to look at the experiences and contributions of BAME people to British life across the 20th century. It is a companion exhibition to Here to Stay - how the Windrush generation helped shape the NHS: portraits of NHS staff by documentary photographer Inès Elsa Dalal, which will be on display at the Oculus between 10 June - 5 July.

An exhibition co-curated by Jasmine Gideon, Birkbeck, University of London, and Gloria Miqueles, Chilean ex-political prisoner, held at the MRC between 30 October - 17 November 2017.
The Open Education Series was a monthly series of events organized by students at the University of Warwick on topics that have been mostly excluded or challenge the Eurocentric academic curriculum. The series utilised the resources of the MRC, a unique archive housing primary sources on modern British social, political and economic history and allowed for attendees to engage with original source material.
A project that involved working with local schools to develop pupils' research skills and encourage them to engage with primary sources.
