Apna Heritage Archive
The Apna Heritage Archive is bringing together a collection 2000 historic photographs and memorabilia relating to Punjabi migration to Wolverhampton from 1960 to 1989. Creating 75 present day portraits from within the Punjabi community.
This is important to the local Punjabi community in Wolverhampton because it acknowledges and celebrates its presence. It is also of interest to the wider Indian and Asian communities in the city because the project’s existence sends out a powerful welcoming message i.e. ‘celebrating the other’
