Current Projects

X-Drifts Festival 2018

CrossDrifts Festival 2018 will be an excitingly unique blend of academia and practice. In our third year, we have programmed a series of activities well worth catching!

We have established a significant partnership with Thurrock International Celebration of Culture, TICC. This complements the academic, film and music learning activities at SOAS, University of London. We have also begun associations with Aurora Metro Books and Quercus Books, publishers of Asian writing.


We are in partnership with Thurrock Council arts and culture via Thurrock International Celebration of Culture (TICCulture) to explore and implement ways to expand the cultural landscape in the area and to reflect the migratory and commercial histories of Tilbury Docks.

Britindia (UK-India project)

The shared world of India and Britain is a fluid tapestry of exchange, migration, joy, pain, experiences, inspiration and creativity. We call this Britindia – a bilateral cultural arc of creativity.

Over time and history, our sensibilities have been shaped by the combined legacy between Britain and India. The confluence of a multitude of traditions, customs, identities continue to nourish our imagination and ingenuity.

Britindia is that intoxicating lotus that inspires our imagination to create visions anew. It navigates a global space.
