The Suffolk Windrush Select Committee will be celebrating Windrush 2021 with a launch at the HOLD in Ipswich on 10th July 2021, where a visual and audio exhibition showcasing the experiences of Ipswich residents who came to the UK in the 1950s and 1960s to create new lives. In all areas of life, home, church, work, and community, these Caribbean families have contributed greatly to Ipswich society in many innovative and interesting ways and we pay tribute.
The Windrush exhibition shares their journey, their trials, tribulations and great achievements and will contribute to the Suffolk archives for years to come. We thank Suffolk Archives for this collaboration as the Windrush exhibition marks the 73rd year since the arrival of the HMS Windrush at Tilbury Docks, and will be at the HOLD until 2nd August 2021.
The exhibition will feature visual and audio representation of Suffolk community members who came to the UK in the 1950s and 1960s, Art Work by Letha Evelyn, and a series of Zoom lectures by leading pioneer speakers.
Venue: THE HOLD, 131 Fore Street, Ipswich, IP4 1LN.
Following on from the Windrush launch event, there will be 2 online lectures facilitated by Ivy Scott (Consultant and Lecturer), where we offer a platform to leading national speakers to share aspects of Caribbean history, and their remarkable journeys with us.
