Talking Objects - Introduction

This heritage project was developed in collaboration with Kingston’s South Asian communities who share their ‘untold’ migration stories through personal objects. From everyday cooking utensils to handmade textiles and heirlooms, these objects have accompanied their owners across continents; surviving wars and migration and continue to be passed down the generations, keeping family history alive.
