OSCH x Radical Readers
Book Discussion with Nooruddean Choudry
After 3+ years, we are celebrating the work of the Our Shared Cultural Heritage ‘kick the dust’ project with a week long series of events across two cities, Manchester and Glasgow, focusing on information-sharing, creative interventions, tours and panel discussions led by the Manchester Young Collective and the Glasgow Changemakers.
This event will be led by: Our Shared Cultural Heritage. Inshallah United is about growing up as a strictly halal Stretford Ender; a devout Muslim and diehard Red. It’s about praying five times a day that United would sign Alan Shearer and knock the Scousers off their perch. And it’s a deeply personal account of life as a Muslim Asian Mancunian kid in the late 80s and 90s, bookmarked by the most successful period in Manchester United’s history. Note: Whilst this event will be an in-person conversation and book discussion with Nooruddean Choudry exploring themes from the book ‘Inshaallah United’, you do not need to have read the book to attend. The questions posed and the topics of discussion initiated will all be based on the concepts, ideas and thoughts shared by the authors around identity and heritage, rather than a detailed book discussion and analysis.
Please note, videography and photography will occur at this event.
OSCH is led by the British Council in partnership with Glasgow Life, Manchester Museum and UK Youth. Supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund. For Manchester Museum website, extra info to be added to the events: Our Shared Cultural Heritage (OSCH) experiments with new ways for museums and heritage sector to work better for young people.

OSCH works in collaboration with museums and heritage organisations in Bangladesh, India and Pakistan focusing on projects within each region and collaboratively across regions.
