In September 2016, Mahtab Hussain travelled to Kashmir; to the place where his parents had once called home. He was able to meet members of his family for the first time, including his great grandmother, and to witness the kind of life he may have lived, had history taken a different turn.

Over the next few months, working with the artist and local communities, we will build and decorate a traditional Kashmiri mud house and the artist will also create tintype portraits of local people, gradually building a portrait of Walsall.
