A Celebration of Windrush in Devon

Join us for an online Zoom talk celebrating the lives and contributions of the Windrush generations in Devon

Wednesday 28 October, 6.00 pm – 7.00 pm

Retired Assistant Professor of Midwifery Faye Doris and Chef Euten Lindsay will be in conversation with Sandhya Dave, telling stories about their heritage and connections to Windrush, and answering questions from the audience.

Euten Lindsay has lived in Plymouth for 10 years. He was caught up in the Windrush scandal and threatened with deportation, despite having lived in the UK for 40 years. Faye Doris has lived in the South West since moving to the UK in 1972, including 24 years in Exeter.

This event has been jointly organised with Devon Development Education. The conversation will be chaired by Sandhya Dave, DDE’s Cultural Diversity Co-ordinator. Further information about DDE’s Windrush project and resources, including Euten’s story and Faye’s story can be found on their website, www.globalcentredevon.org.uk

The ‘in-conversation’ lasts for 40 minutes. Euten and Faye will then be available for a live Q&A for a further 20 minutes afterwards.

This event will take place LIVE on Zoom.
