The Southall Story at the South Bank
The Southall Story has been invited by the South Bank Centre to create a month long exhibition at the South Bank’ Spirit Level, otherwise known as the Yellow Room.
The exhibition features the work of artists from Southall including the works of the Southall Story team that includes film maker and writer Shakila Maan, the renowned composer Kuljit Bhamra MBE and photographer, Ammy Phull.
The Southall Story is a walk through time charting the history Southall from the 50’s onwards. Live performances, installations, music, film and photography bring drama, comedy, tragedy and romance to the South Bank audience.
Other artists invited include Gurinder Chadha, Mohinder Bhamra, Abdi Karim, Poko from Misty in Roots. Invitations have also gone out to the punk band The Ruts, and The Southall Story have their fingers cross that they will grace the exhibition with their presence. Also invited are the Progressive Writers Associations and community groups such as The Monitoring Project, Southall Black Sisters, Peoples Unite, The National Association of Asian Youth and many more.
The exhibition has been pencilled in for the first week of April 2010 and will run throughout the month with talks and workshops.
We will post confirmed dates on this Blog very soon. Alternatively, you can contact the South Bank Centre for further information.
