Changing Faces of European Cities

The Making of Multiethnic Cardiff

MO 05.12.16, 19:00 – 21:00 Uhr
Hospitalhof Stuttgart, Büchsenstr. 33 70174 Stuttgart

In der Reihe »Von Nachbarn lernen« stellen wir einen Beitrag aus der Partnerstadt Cardiff in Wales vor: The speech – well illustrated – will be held in English.

Cardiff is a seaport city with a long history of immigration and acceptance of difference. From the opening of the first dock in 1839 to the redevelopment of the 1960s, Cardiff docklands attracted immigrants from some 50 nations – from Western, Eastern and Southern Europe; India, China and the Far East; Somalia and the Middle East; West and Southern Africa; South America and the Caribbean; and the USA and Canada. Through photographs and stories, this talk looks at the early development of Cardiff as a cosmopolitan city.
