Over the coming year, Chai and Chaat Club will gather the untold stories of female immigrants and present My Home, an exhibition of film, images, text and more making sure their voices are heard.
Walthamstow is a multiculturally rich and diverse place to live. The richness of cultures, food, religions, languages, customs and traditions form the fabric of the E17 community. The role of women from ethnic minority groups has tended to be overlooked and their voices have gone unheard. Chai and Chaat Club aim to change that.
My Home will seek to address the absence of immigrant women’s voice by documenting their personal experiences of settling and examining the obstacles they faced, the enablers they encountered and the struggles they overcame in order make Walthamstow their home.
