About this event
The Common Room are thrilled to be hosting ‘Digging Deep: Coal Miners of African Caribbean Heritage & The North East’ from Saturday 25th September to Monday 1st November.
Join us via live stream on Friday 1st October, and hear from the exhibition curator, Norma Gregory, about the origins, challenges, process, journey and future legacy of Digging Deep.
If you’d like to attend this event in person, please visit this page.
The Digging Deep exhibition reveals personal narratives, memories and creative representations of former coal miners of Black/African-Caribbean heritage and other diverse groups within UK mining history, including the North East. Visitors can expect to see portraits, poetry and more, which draw their attention to the diversity of our once prestigious mining industry, in contrast to the typical narratives surrounding the industry and its communities.
Live stream begins at 7pm
Event close at 9pm
An email with the link to access this live stream will be emailed to you a couple of hours prior to the event start time – please make sure you check your inbox (and spam/junk folder).
