Journey from Home project is interested in the shared experience of the soldiers of South Asia from the different faiths, who are more usually addressed separately despite serving together. The project will be important for supporting the current South Asian community to recognise its connection to wider First World War centenary events across the UK in 2018 and for informing British society of the diversity of those that fought.

This event is for students, staff as well as the general public. There will be a lecture by the founder of the project and a serving serviceman. The event will be held in OL1 from 6pm to 9pm on 20th November.
