For Refugee Week 2023, OSE Alumni Dipesh Pandya has compiled a collaborative playlist with (im)migrant owners and workers in shops and businesses along Northdown Road and Cliff Terrace, Margate. This cultural and sonic journey is a representation of a side of Cliftonville not heard outside of its (im)migrant communities.
