Like Sugar in Milk: Stories of Zoroastrian Migration to the South East of England

Like Sugar in Milk is a Heritage Lottery funded mobile oral history and photographic portrait exhibition focusing on the migration stories of Zoroastrian and Parsee elders now residing in the South East of England.

The exhibition marks the culmination of an 18 month project involving over twenty volunteers from the South East of England. These volunteer memory collectors were selected by a project Steering Group made up of members and leaders of Zoroastrian organisations, to capture the migration stories of twelve Zoroastrian and Parsee interview subjects. Although from Iran, India and East Africa, this is one community, with the same cultural practices. Iranian Zoroastrians have come to the UK from Iran. Indian Parsees are Zoroastrians who migrated to India from Iran 1300 years ago when Islam arrived in the country. East African Zoroastrians travelled there to work for the British Empire in the 19th and 20th centuries. Even though there are only about 150,000 members of the culture dispersed throughout the world there is a strong, united community in the South East.
BandBazi are proud and excited to present these captivating, unique and poignant stories to exhibition venues across the South East of England.
