Leeds Industrial Museum

Canal Road, Armley, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS12 2QF

Interwoven Histories makes visible stories and experiences particular to migrant workers in Leeds and their contribution to industry and culture. Referencing the city’s expansive textile and clothing industry and history, the exhibition presents a collage of material to explore the work, lives and representations of migrants (past, present and future).

Part of a three-year Heritage Lottery (HLF) funded project curated by Pavilion, the exhibition is the result of ongoing archival research and conversations with people from across the city.

Interwoven Histories expands narratives around migration and looks at the issues of race, equality and citizenship that inevitably follow. The project addresses a period of time where the initial encouragement of migrant labour into the Britain to reinvigorate the postwar economy, turned into an atmosphere of political and social hostility towards mass immigration.
