Harlow is 75: Kabul, Taylor Swift and the kindness of the people of Harlow

Harlow is 75: A Celebration of Global Harlow / Fri 30th Dec 2022 at 12:20pm

OVER the year, whilst undertaking all these Harlow is 75 interviews, we have had a number of varied conversations on and off camera.

These include discussing Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez with Sonia from Kabul in Afghanistan.

However, these were topics she would have chatted about before August 2021 and are still topics she likes to talk about now.

For the record, YourHarlow recommended “Only Murders in the Building”.

We wanted one of our final interviews to stress the relatively ordinary life that Sonia was living before the Taliban took over that fateful summer.

But also touch upon Harlow life as well.

To mark the town’s 75thanniversary, Harlow Council and Your Harlow have launched a project which records the diverse history, heritage, and culture of the people and groups which are part of modern-day Harlow.

The Harlow at 75 project is made up of audio-visual recordings of conversations with both individuals and groups that explores their lives abroad before resettling in Harlow. The project reflects that we are a local but global new town and explores themes such as the definition of “Home”. 

Note: The population of Afghanistan is 44 million and not Kabul.
