Our Stories Through Nokshi Kantha is one of the co-created projects, part of our Amal Connects programme. Over 12 months, around 50 women have worked with artists Fateha Begum, Haseebah Ali, and Abeda Begum who share their heritage and language, so opening up this creative opportunity to them. The project enables the women to inherit and practice a stitching tradition which resonates with them from their family memories. At the same time, the women have built their confidence by engaging in an artform that is new to them, drama. Adding storyboarding and design to the mix, the women have stitched their migration stories into a book, sari, and other pieces.
