The Museum of London is working with the Osmani Trust on a project capturing the experiences of British-Bangladeshi females in east London in relation to dress and identity.

We invite British-Bangladeshi women and girls in Tower Hamlets to attend our free Community ‘Show and Tell’ event on Saturday 25th January 2020 1-4pm at the Osmani Trust, 58 Underwood Rd, Whitechapel, London E1 5AW.

Bring an item of clothing that is important to you.
Share your story with the community.

See the e-flyer attached. Please do share with anyone who might be interested in attending.

Please RSVP to curatingLDN@museumoflondon.org.uk

The Museum of London hopes to collect some items of clothing which represent the British-Bangladeshi community. Although nothing will be collected on the day, we may ask for your contact details and contact you at a later date about donating an item.

There is no obligation to donate, and anyone who does donate will be reimbursed the item’s cost.

For further information about the project or if you have any questions please feel free to contact me directly on aserrant@museumoflondon.org.uk.

I hope to see there!

    I am emailing you from the Museum of London to let you know about a project we are delivering in partnership with the Osmani Trust in Whitechapel.
    The project aims to capture the experiences of British-Bangladeshi females in east London in relation to dress and identity. It is part of a wider programme at the museum called ‘Curating London,’ which seeks to collect objects which represent what it is like to live in London today.
    Through the project we hope to expand the museum collection to better represent, and enable us to tell the stories of, the British-Bangladeshi community. We will be doing this by recording interviews with members of the community, as well as identifying potential objects the museum may be able to collect which help tell those stories. A ‘community collecting advisory group’ made up of representatives of the British-Bangladeshi community will lead this process.
    I am contacting you as we thought you may be interested in contributing to the project. We would be really interested in hearing your experiences as a female living in London, and believe your story would be incredibly valuable in adding to the narrative of the project. Julie Begum will be doing the oral history interviews.
    The project will have a lasting legacy in sharing the stories and experiences of Londoners today with future generations.
    If this sounds like something which may be of interest to you, I’d be happy to arrange a phone call or initial meeting with myself or one of the project team, to give you some more information about the project and the ways you could be involved.
    I look forward to hearing back from you soon.
    Best wishes,
