New Project: Prejudice & Solidarity Archived Throughout History (PATH)

This project is community-led heritage project run by Four Pillars & GREC, exploring ethnic minority and queer community history in Aberdeen and surrounding areas.

Between summer 2022 and spring 2024, the project invites members of these communities to engage and record the difficult but inspiring stories of prejudice and solidarity they have experienced.

In partnership with Aberdeen City Council and the University of Aberdeen, we will be re-discovering existing archival materials that are not part of our current local history narrative.

We hope to capture previously unheard local history through interviews and oral stories, to preserve the rich heritage within these communities and for future generations.

Sharing with the wider community the memories and personal accounts of people from ethnic minority groups and the LGBT+ community, our aim is to inspire new waves of solidarity and equality.
