Animation workshop: Picturing Belonging
*****THERE WILL NOT BE A HOST. WE ARE ADVERTISING THIS EVENT****** Loughborough University, MMPI presents Picturing Belonging With the help of animator Diwas Bisht, a doctoral researcher member of the Migrant Memories, the Post-Colonial Imagination team, participants will produce animations inspired by their personal pictures which they connect to themes of home, identity and belonging. This could involve: (re)producing existing photographs and images that have special importance in the stories of people’s lives; working with Diwas to learn how to draw pictures that represent photographs that participants wish they had taken in the past, but never had the opportunity to do so; recreating photographs that have been lost or have degraded over time. Through these activities we will talk about what photographs mean to people and how they work as vehicles of memory to connect us to the stories of our lives.

What we're about

The Bengali Professionals London meetup group is aimed to bring like minded people from a Bengali/ Bangladeshi background together in London. We all have our close circle of friends and family, but sometimes its nice to expand our social circles and meet more people that can enrich our lives for the better.

We aim to plan events that have a fun, safe and social aspect - with the aim to bring the Bengali/ Bangladeshi community together. From networking drinks, eating out to shows there will always be something for everyone.

Our events will be carefully planned and organised, there will always be someone on hand to welcome you to each event.

Please note: you will be approved as a member for this group only if you have a picture of yourself on Meetup. Don't forget to join Bengali Professionals London's LinkedIn Group (https://www.linkedin.com/groups/8467076) and interact with fellow Bengali/Bangladeshi professionals based in London.
