Welcome to Diaspora-Artists.net

diaspora-artists.net is an innovative online research and reference facility centred on visual arts practice by artists from a plurality of diasporic backgrounds. Initiated by Curator/Researcher Eddie Chambers the project was initially developed in collaboration with Watershed and the Digital Cultures Research Centre at the University of the West of England.

The online material is drawn from a collection held by Eddie Chambers, relating to the visual arts practices of artists from African/African-Caribbean/South Asian and other diasporas. The aim of this website is to preserve and make available to online audiences material of historical and cultural significance, making a marked impact on the ways in which ‘British’ art history is recorded, constructed, disseminated, taught and researched.
