Brick Lane 1978 - Touring Exhibition

Installation shot from Mulberry Girls School, January 2023

Following the success of our show Brick Lane 1978: The Turning Point, at Four Corners Gallery in 2022, the exhibition is now touring venues in Tower Hamlets.

The show was created as part of a major heritage project led by Four Corners and Swadhinata Trust with a dedicated group of volunteers, who interviewed many of the people involved in the momentous events of 1978. It pays tribute to a generation of Bengali activists whose actions helped change the course of social equality in the UK. The exhibition puts on display photographs by Paul Trevor documenting the dramatic struggle for justice which took place after the racist murder of Altab Ali in May 1978.

We are delighted that the exhibition will continue to reach new audiences at schools and community centres in the borough.
