Exhibition at Museum and Cathedral
The six-week exhibition at Peterborough Museum and ten day exhibition at Peterborough Cathedral went very well and part of the project was over 170 page A5 community heritage in photographs book, A6 booklet with summary of the community history in the city, display of a dozen individual profiles, a DVD of the Peterborough British-Pakistani community and some small Pakistan exhibits. This was the first ever exhibition of this kind is held at Peterborough Museum and offered a unique opportunity to learn about the Peterborough British-Pakistani community. I am immensely proud that i lead this project from start to finish.
