From the Warm Heart of Africa was recorded at the Malawi Association, Northampton, in 2012 as part of the Migration Stories project.
From 2010 to 2012 the Migration Stories project recorded stories of moving into the East Midlands from within the UK and further afield. Having received funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, Renaissance East Midlands and Igniting Ambition, the project worked with people from a wide variety of groups and communities who have moved into the East Midlands since the end of the Second World War. These may be people who have moved to find jobs or education, or who are fleeing persecution or war, or who have decided to make the East Midlands a place for retirement.
The project provided recording equipment and training in how to use the equipment and carry out interviews. Volunteers also learnt how to edit the material into short videos about their communities.
The project was conceived as part of the Cultural Olympics and we hope to demonstrate that although people from all over the world are coming to the UK for the 2012 Olympics, there are people from all over the world, including the UK, in the East Midlands already.
In the longer term we intend the Migration Stories website - http://www.migrationstories.co.uk/ - to be a space where future projects covering any aspect of migration can post material.
