Sampad South Asian Arts presents content from their recent community heritage project My Route, a project which captured, shared and preserved the vibrant and culturally rich heritage of Birmingham’s Stratford Road (and surrounding areas).

Over the last 60 years this road has welcomed many new residents from across the globe, whose lives and experiences have

created diverse and colorful tales. The exhibition, which combines photographs and audio, paints a picture of what it is like to live and work on Stratford Road, giving insight into the rich social history of the area.

My Route was supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund. The exhibition at University of Birmingham is presented in partnership with Arts & Science Festival.
