ROAR Chapel Installation

Date: 26th May 2021
Time: 10:00 - 13:00

In partnership with Rotherham Open Arts Renaissance (ROAR).

From the 26 May through to the 18 June an exhibition containing thought-provoking work from a Pakistani women’s art collective will be taking over the Chapel.

Shaheen Shah, a visual artist,  Zanib Rasool MBE, a writer and poet, and Mariam Shah, an oral historian, make up the Zanib Collective.Their exhibition, The Suitcase, marks the monumental life change of the first generation of Pakistani women who came to Rotherham in the 1960s,  telling their stories through the memories they carried with them in hearts and luggage. It captures the sight, smell, and feel of the Pakistani home through stories, poetry, visual images and video. Everyday objects the women brought with them will be on display; prayer mats, clay pots, bracelets and henna and photos of the family left behind, plus the letters that arrived from home as they navigated a new life
