A collection of artworks created by artist Kate Genever, who spent time with Kursheed Ahmed and two generations of his family.
Kate spent time with the family having conversations, sharing tea and listening to their experiences and memories. In her blog, she says “Frustrated by negative perceptions of their community and area and the effect this has, they are determined to tell another story, one that places respect, family and reciprocity at its heart.”
Kate then made a series of artwork based on their conversations. She wrote their stories onto found photographs and ones she made in their home. Kate also created two drawings inspired by the area, the mural, and Kursheed’s family,
