This summer, Sparkhill-based artist Tasawar Bashir will explore previously untold stories of historic service and sacrifice from Birmingham’s South Asian communities through a sound art installation at the National Memorial Arboretum.
Commissioned by the Arboretum and Sampad, an arts charity that connects people with South Asian arts and heritage, the new installation will celebrate the forgotten men and women who contributed to many military campaigns between 1914 and 1947. These stories will be narrated by community elders who Bashir has been working alongside in Birmingham for the past 12 months.
The free, Tasawar Bashir sound art installation has been supported by The MECC Trust and will open on 25 June and is part of the ‘Sports, Service and the Commonwealth’ programme running throughout summer 2022 at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire.
