From the Shadows of War and Empire – opening day

When we think about World War I, what comes to mind?  Trenches, poppies, war poets, millions of lives lost or wounded on the bloody battles of the Western Front.  This exhibition attempts to shed some light on the untold and unfamiliar facts and the stories of colonised people of the time – that are an integral and important part of hidden history.

This exhibition has been developed by Southern Voices, a Manchester based community group, through a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The exhibition From the Shadows of War and Empire: Perspectives of Colonised People on World War One runs until Sunday 17 July.
