Sampad’s new exhibition exploring how different generations living in Birmingham understand the 1947 Partition of India today has been curated by artist Tasawar Bashir, in collaboration with 20 volunteers from the West Midlands who have helped to co-curate and design the display.

Championing local stories and insights, the exhibition reveals how people cope under collective displacement, turmoil and changing identities.

The artistic response features new work created by the team, including a sculptural sound installation by Tasawar Bashir.

Produced by Sampad South Asian Arts in partnership with Birmingham Museums Trust. Supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).
