January always starts hard and fast for us. New years resolutions up and running (well almost!), happy new year greetings almost exhausted and with a chill in the air, we couldn’t think of a better way to start the year than to be surrounded by books in the home of Joya Knight.
Partition survivor, former science teacher in the UK’s first comprehensive, Japanese language student and all round Nutkhut inspiration, Joya Knight kicks of our calendar month. Researching her life amongst her books and her art has been an inspiration and a total Joy.
After a chance meeting in the lobby of our office in Charlton House, Joya’s contribution to our ‘Defining Moments’ series has contributed to making the whole process clearer and has given the project meaning. Joya’s experience of Partition will form part of our National Education Toolkit for generations to come.
