On Our Way – converting bus stops into galleries on Soho Road

📸 Ahsen Sayeed

I’m currently producing On Our Way. The idea, originally conceived by me, is that we will be transforming 8 bus stops on Soho Road into stained glass art galleries. The artwork themselves will be co-created with our wonderful Artist Curator Nilupa Yasmin, and groups with memories and connections to the area.

The first bus stop gallery was debuted at the Bus Boycott Block Party. The rest were debuted in May 2022. Here’s a blog explaining the inspiration behind On Our Way. And here’s the press release.

With many thanks to:

this is a passion project I’m doing in my spare time

This is an open-source list to finding Bangladeshis working in areas they weren’t expected to be in. The idea came to me when I was on my holiday (lol). So I just pulled up Google Sheets and put the call out on social media. It’s not a list that’s meant to make us compete amongst ourselves, but to celebrate one another and to help us not feel alone.

If you’d like to raise awareness of it, please share my original tweet and/or Instagram post about it.
