The Wakefield Asian Archive aims to tell the story of the Pakistani and Kashmiri community in Wakefield. Spanning almost 70 years, the story starts with those who left their homeland, embarking on a journey of many miles and recounts why they came to Wakefield and how they settled here and goes on to look at how the community has developed to where it is today.
Over the next year, young people from Next Generation will be recording the stories of their families and others in the community which will be collected together to form the Archive. Available online, the Archive will be there for everyone to enjoy and to learn from. People will be able to add their own stories, photos and videos and help the Archive to grow.
If YOU have a story, photos or video you would like to share, email us or call 01924 383773 / 01924 200039!
