Another England

Black and Asian histories are a vital part of England’s story. Yet in our textbooks, at our historic sites and in our records they're not well represented.

Another England begins the work of understanding the stories of people of colour in England. It will create a public record of these histories and the places that are important to them.

Working with people from these under-researched and under-represented groups, Another England will enrich the established history of England.

Historic England is looking for people, groups and organisations to get involved in Another England. Could you:

  • Tell us about the places and histories that should be included?
  • Help us find appropriate ways to acknowledge the important stories that come to light?

This exhibition is inspired by the photographs and research generated from 'Another England: Mapping 100 Years of Black and Asian History'. In addition, newly commissioned works will interrogate concepts of multiculturalism, intersectionality and a sense of place through the lens of emerging, contemporary photographers and arts collectives and new collectors.
