 Coming Soon: 

The untold story of Chinese migration to the East Midlands

From East to East is an ambitious new research project on Chinese migration to the East Midlands. Working closely with Chinese communities in Leicester, Nottingham, and Derby, we have researched migration to the region from the 1950s to the present day. We have explored why people moved to the East Midlands, how they made their lives in their new homes, and how the communities of each city have changed over the years. 


Working with professional artists and historians, we have created a series of documentary shorts focusing on each decade from the 1950s to the 2010s, an immersive, interactive digital arts exhibition, and this website, which will serve as a permanent and accessible record of our findings. 


The full website will be online very soon, but for now, please come along to our special events in Leicester Derby and Nottingham, detailed below.


We have organised  a series of fantastic events in Leicester, Derby and Nottingham to mark Chinese New Year and celebrate the culmination of the From East to East project:
