As one of the UK’s leading Asian Arts development agencies, we develop develop, commission, and produce a range of arts and music events. This includes events and tours, international work, programming for festivals, digital exhibitions, artist development, and education and participation activities.

We work with audiences from a wide range of communities and all age groups at community and mainstream venues and festivals. The approach is inclusive, seeking to engage not only all of the South Asian communities, but also to share South Asian music and arts with the wider community.
