We’re delighted that @dawinderbansal1 is our third artist commission for 2018 /2019. Dawinder will produce an art installation celebrating the lives of first generation South Asian migrant women living in Sandwell. Through a collection of oral history interviews, photographs and moving image Dawinder will explore the relationships between these women and their cars. The work will also highlight the positive impact of future generations of Asian women who now benefit from the sacrifices of the first generation living within patriarchal and traditional Indian family structure. The project will launch as part of Multistory’s Blast! Festival in June 2019. . .

This weekend we were #outandabout with photographer @jon_tonks and 400 pupils and staff at the @ewa_cic Polish school as part of @multistory’s project made in collaboration with Central and Eastern European communities in #Sandwell . Watching 350 kids pour in to the hall was pretty nerve wracking at first.. could we fit them all in??? But everyone took their places, sat very still and Jon even got a round of applause at the end! . . . . #jontonks #photography #portraits #photoshoot #Multistory #project #WestBromwich #ewacic #family #community #schoolportrait #blackcountry #artforeveryone #stories @creativeblackcountry
