Our Latest Event

India's Gateway

Oriental Arts are currently involved in work that brings together Britain’s Gujarati communities with artists, museum curators and library staff. The conversations we have will help to create an exhibition that explores over four hundred years of history shared between Gujarat and Britain; from 1608 when the first British ships arrived in India to the present day. Photography, film and sound recordings from Gujarat, together with material from museum, library and personal collections in Britain, will tell this fascinating story. We hope to tour it to six venues around the country.

To enable us to do this we need your help. If you have a connection with Gujarat we would like to talk to you about your ideas, your experiences and the stories you think we should include. You may have your own personal recollections to share, or objects or photographs you may be willing to lend or have copied for display. Please get in touch via our contact page.
