The Bangladeshi Historical Memory Project is a collaborative people’s history of a region of 160 million stories, and over 6 million migrants all over the world; a history realized through a participatory model using our stories as tools for liberation.

This is a collaborative project that is seeking innovative Bangladeshi folks across the diaspora who are seeking to work in Bangladeshi community to design a political theater and digital archive collective. We're looking for Bangladeshi artists, creators, writers, visionaries and changemakers. Are you a graphic designer? Singer? Documentarian? Painter? Actress? We'd love to collaborate with you!

Our Stories

With Bangladeshi residents of New York, the Bangladeshi Historical Memory Project works with oral histories to document the cultures of resilience in the Bangladeshi diaspora. In order to address the historical amnesia around our ancestral lineage, migration and partition stories, this archive serves as a place for historical memory.
