Adila Rassoude

The settlement of Yemeni Seafarers in Cardiff. Muslim communities began to settle in Britain during the late 19th Century after the opening of the Suez Canal. The largest settlements were in port cities, in particularly Cardiff in Wales. During the first term of my MA I have done thorough research into the history of Islam in Bute Town Cardiff. I have collected various photographs and anecdotal stories in hope to create a book and possibly a sound and moving image instillation. For this term I have created a ‘Community Tree’ showing the connections of how the Islamic faith established itself within a foreign community.
