Following a successful tour of the South East between January and March 2013, Like Sugar in Milk returns to BandBazi’s hometown at the Black and Minority Ethnic Community Partnership (BMECP) centre, Fleet Street, Brighton. The BMECP have kindly offered its public spaces to welcome this oral history and photographic exhibition.
‘Like Sugar in Milk: Stories of Zoroastrian Migration to the South East of England’ is a Heritage Lottery funded mobile oral history and photographic portrait exhibition focusing on the migration stories of Zoroastrian and Parsee elders now residing in the South East of England. The exhibition has received an overwhelmingly positive response from the public in the areas it visited; Jubilee Library in Brighton & Hove, the Lewis Elton Gallery at the University of Surrey in Guildford, Oxford Town Hall, and the Zoroastrian Centre in North London. Like Sugar in Milk gives a vivid insight of the Zoroastrian culture; mixing a series of interviews of members of the Zoroastrian community with photographic portraits and archive photographs of the subjects’ families.
BandBazi thanks the BMECP for its collaboration, and takes the opportunity to express its esteem for the activities the BMECP has delivered; in its work with diverse BME community groups and organisations, individuals and their families in Brighton and Hove including Refugee and Asylum Seeker Communities.
BandBazi welcomes you to visit Like Sugar in Milk at the BMECP from Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm. The exhibition will remain until June 2nd, in conjunction with the end of the Brighton Festival. For further information on the exhibition, visit www.zoroastrianstories.org
