About

The Strike at Imperial Typewriters

In May 1974, 500 Asian workers at The Imperial Typewriters Company factory went on strike, taking a stand against unfair conditions and discrimination.

The project marks the 45th anniversary of the mass walkout with an exhibition, online space, talks, walks, workshops and flash fiction events designed to engage with Leicester's writers, artists, elders, young people and multicultural communities.
