Memories of city in the 1950s

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Some of the women at the event Some of the women at the event

Women’s memories of coming to live in Bradford, from South East Asia, have been made into a film as part of a heritage project.

Women who settled in Bradford in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s have been interviewed about their experiences of immigration, marriage, domestic life, education and employment.

The interviews, in workshops and one-to-one sessions, have been carried out over the past year for a project called Hamaari Yaadien – Our Memories, which was awarded £44,000 Heritage Lottery funding.

About 150 Muslim, Hindu and Sikh women took part in workshops.

Many of the women gathered at the Millan Centre, in Manningham, to watch the film, which will be accompanied by a book and photographic exhibition this summer.

£44,000 just to talk to a few women and show a film ?

Nice little earner, ain't it ?
