Windrush Years - Next Generations

2018 marked the 70th anniversary of the arrival of the Empire Windrush ship to London. 539 people from the West Indies/Caribbean responded to the call from the Mother Country for labour in post war Britain.

In 2016, the Museum of Oxford formed partnerships with the Afrikan and Caribbean Kultural Heritage Initiative (ACKHI) and the Ber-Bedo Kelo Lonyo United Women’s Organisation (BKLUWO) to develop an exhibition project to mark the anniversary.

Mixing Matters

Mixing Matters is a project celebrating the rich culinary heritage of Oxford's communities.

Started through a partnership with the Oxford Hindu Temple & Community Centre Project, it has involved three other community groups. Participants brought food-related objects which carried meaningful memories, which they shared with others. Inspired by the objects, participants created collaborative art pieces. Favourite recipes were also shared during the sessions. At the end of the project, participants cooked their favourite foods and shared them in a community feast, open to all.
