Image of International Womens Day with Nudrat Afza

Share an informal, relaxed and inspiring afternoon with Bradford's own photographer, Nudrat Afza. Nudrat will give a tour and talk on her current exhibition in the gallery, 'KEHILLAH' including her intriguing photographic projects and bodies of work based around her home town and in particular Manningham, where she lives. Nudrat is the Muslim woman who photographed Bradford's last synagogue. A single mother who couldn't afford her own camera, she will talk us through the poignant shots capturing the last 45 worshippers in the city's only remaining synagogue. Nudrat has never had a lesson and doesn't work digitally, not having access the internet.

Bradford Museums and Galleries are proud to announce the introduction of AppEar; a new system to help the visually impaired explore our collections. This year we have been working closely with RNIB and Bradford Talking Media to develop the use of the audio PenFriend devices, which are already widely used within the visually impaired community. Visitors can now borrow a PenFriend from our reception desk to hear visual descriptions of the surrounding displays.
