About this activity
The exhibition will open to the public from 12 noon on Saturday, 3 June 2023, every Wednesday to Saturday, 11am until 4pm, until Friday, 30 June 2023.
The display will be held at Unit 42-44, The Piazza (ex-Poundworld Unit) in Huddersfield town centre, ensuring ample space for visitors and town centre shoppers to experience the exhibition in a welcoming environment.
The Windrush generation refers to the Caribbean Pioneers who arrived in the United Kingdom between 1948 and 1971, contributing significantly to British society in various fields.
‘Paraffinalia’ illustrates the history, aspirations, and contributions of the UK’s local and national Windrush generations. The exhibition will incorporate a wide range of artistic mediums, such as art, displays, literature, textiles, and multimedia installations, in one single space. Visitors can expect an immersive experience as they stroll through the carefully curated displays, with ten distinct zones representing different aspects of the Windrush story.
Guests will have the opportunity to witness a variety of immersive elements, including food tasting, live DJ sets, children’s activities, domino tables, and a dedicated media zone showcasing documentary footage. The exhibition aims to encourage public engagement and interaction with the topic while celebrating the diverse communities in Kirklees.
