Commissioned by Peterborough Presents in support of their Heritage Lottery Millfield Link project, I worked closely with three generations of the Kursheed family. Frustrated by negative perceptions of their community and area, and its subsequent impact, they were determined to tell another story – one that placed respect, family and reciprocity at its heart.
In response and over many conversations, in their front room, I developed a series of collages. Which became source material for these two annotated drawings, that will be accessioned into Peterborough Museum after an exhibition in the city.
