Event description

Description

An invitation into the Somali-Mancunian experience,
hosting the images, testimonies, sounds and swag
of the many individuals that make up this seldomly centred
yet hyper-visible community;
allowing the viewer to discover and share in the marvellously mundane.
See My Dunya is an experiment, a local and grass roots initiative conceived in conjunction with
BPM: Big People Music as way of carving out a space in dialogue with the Somali community in Manchester.
