Curator Mr George Grignon and Artcore, supported by the High Sheriff of Derbyshire Theresa Peltier are pleased to invite you to the launch of The Derbyshire Windrush Exhibition.
The Derbyshire Windrush Exhibition is a tribute to the enduring legacy of the African Caribbean community in Derbyshire. It traces their remarkable voyage from Jamaica and the broader Caribbean area since the momentous arrival of the HMT Empire Windrush in the UK in 1948. This exhibition commemorates and acknowledges the priceless contributions made by this community to both Derbyshire and the United Kingdom.
It features never-before-seen historical photos and depictions of Derbyshire’s Windrush pioneers and influential figures, along with valuable firsthand accounts from members of the African Caribbean community in Derbyshire.
Date: October 4, 2023 to 25 October
Venue: Artcore Gallery, 8 Albert Street, Osnabruck Square, Derby DE12DS
