Adopting Britain: 70 Years of Migration

Adopting Britain at Southbank Centre

Adopting Britain: 70 Years of Migration
Southbank Centre, London
April–September 2015

“In this exhibition we explore ways in which, in the midst of Islamophobia and hostility towards immigration, people have reached out to communities that are stitched into the fabric of our country.

We highlight stories from British recruitment campaigns in the Caribbean in the 1950s to Indian sub-continent and Eastern European migration, and the contribution made to the British economic and social landscape. And we also explore our moral and legal obligation to protect individuals, especially children, who flee their countries in order to seek sanctuary in Britain.”
