Running until 1st October 2023, open Monday to Sunday, 10am to 5pm.
Created from interviews with people from the South Asian Community who have shared their memories and experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic, Together In A World Apart is one part of the Lockdown Landscapes exhibition currently running at The National Memorial Arboretum, an exhibition capturing the breadth of stories and experiences of lockdown by communities across England.
Birmingham artist Tasawar Bashir has produced a soundscape from interviews he has collected, together with oral histories captured by artist Nafeesa Hamid and members of the Sampad team.
These memories will also be added to the National Archive, meaning the personal experiences of members of the South Asian community are captured and stored for future generations alongside the experiences of those from the many different communities in England today.
Running until 1st October 2023, Lockdown Landscapes is an exhibition led by the National Memorial Arboretum in partnership with the National Forest Company, Westminster Abbey and ArtReach, and supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund. This nationwide community engagement programme commemorates the heroic key workers who have served the nation throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, and remembers those who have lost their lives during this period of national crisis.
