Derby West Indian Community Association: Culture and Legacy

18 March 2022 - 31 July 2022

Museum & Art Gallery

FREE - Give What You Think

Suitable for all.

 

This exhibition dives into the heritage of Derby West Indian Community Association (DWICA), including Windrush generation memories and the experiences of younger members growing up in Derby. It explores how the Association has positively responded to challenges over six decades, to support its local community, building a legacy in the city through its many social, cultural, educational and sporting achievements. The exhibition celebrates the vibrancy and spirit of Derby Caribbean Carnival and the year-long local, national and international connections.

This exhibition is part of The Centre that Powers the Road, a 12-month project exploring the heritage of DWICA, ensuring the history of the Association, and Derby Caribbean Carnival, is better looked after, more accessible and understood. In partnership with Derby Museums, the project will create an important archive for the city documenting the building of a community from the 1950s and the continued vital work of the Association today.

The Centre that Powers the Road is generously supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund.
