How we work
The main activities of ASHT are, research, education and outreach; that’s finding out about sites and objects of Anglo Sikh significance, making them publicly accessible via the internet, and arranging educational exhibitions and events.
By proactively engaging local communities in relevant activities and events, ASHT introduces the concept and existence of the Trail and facilitates participation and engagement with local museums and libraries.
Education and learning permeates all aspects of our work. The engagement of children from all communities is an important yardstick for the future success of ASHT.
The historical span of Anglo Sikh Heritage finds no expression in contemporary teaching and curriculum content and is therefore a significant absentee from the learning experience of young Sikhs and their contemporaries. Initiatives such as Children’s Discovery Club and Anglo Sikh Heritage Week have generated a level of interest which needs to be harnessed, nurtured, and developed. As part of this project we will be engaging an Educational Consultant who will have a vital role in creating educational material and ensuring that educational activities complement the aims of the Anglo Sikh Heritage Trail.
