Windrush Cymru Our Voices, Our Stories, Our History/Ein Lleisiau, Ein Straeon, Ein Hanes
At the National Slate Museum from 9 January to 23 January 2022.
This powerful exhibition features the stories of over 40 of those Windrush Generation Cymru, told in their own words. Learn about their journeys to Wales, and the challenges they faced in building a new life in a country far from their homelands – finding work and the attitudes of people towards them.
The stories show how the Windrush Generation Cymru, and their descendants, have made their mark in all walks of Welsh life: through the jobs they worked, careers they built, the children they raised, and the contributions they made to our communities and culture
Windrush Cymru – Our Voices, Our Stories, Our History was delivered by Race Council Cymru in partnership with Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales, Wales Millennium Centre, People’s Collection Wales, Windrush Cymru Elders, and Black History Wales 365. With support from Arts Council of Wales, Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, and Gower College Swansea.
