The CHAGOS: Cultural Heritage Across Generations project is steered collectively by Chagossian organisations based in Mauritius and the UK. The items featured on this website were produced during a series of workshops and other events in Mauritius and the UK during 2017. At all events, the event organisers undertook an informed consent process with all participants. The consent form provided information about participation in the workshop, recording of workshop activities, the use of the recordings on the website, the identifiability of participants, and the right to withdraw. Information was provided in Kreol and English, and orally and in writing, as preferred by individual participants. Only items for which written informed consent has been received from participants are available online.
