Commemorating this year’s special 75th anniversary Windrush Day, Bristol Cathedral is honoured to announce that it will be hosting a photography exhibition Windrush: A Voyage through the Generations between 12 September and 30 October.
Windrush: A Voyage through the Generations was created by the award-winning South London based social documentary photographer, Jim Grover, to honour the 75th anniversary of the arrival of HMT Empire Windrush to Britain on 22 June 1948. It follows on from Windrush: A Portrait of a Generation which was created and exhibited in 2018, to honour the 70th anniversary.
This new work explores how the subsequent generations are living their lives today in terms of the distinctive culture and traditions that the first ‘Windrush Generation’ brought to the UK between 1948 and 1971. It also shines a light on individuals, many of them women, groups and organisations doing so much to seek to keep the Caribbean culture alive, and to create continuity from one generation to the next.
