ABOUT


Patchwork Archivists is a space between Places. We exist in living rooms, in the cornershop, in recipes, in memories, in dreams, on the tips of our tongues. We exist in the everyday. What can we imagine about our pasts and our future, to guide us through the here and now of our brownness in englistan?

Patchwork Archivists is a grassroots archiving collective creating spaces of intergenerational, intercultural and interfaith dialogue for and with South Asian diasporas. We facilitate conversations, workshops, screenings, reading groups and get togethers.
