This event is a highlight of India Unboxed - a programme of exhibitions, events, digital encounters, discussions, installations and more within the museums and the city of Cambridge. Rooted in our collections, the programme explores themes of identity and connectivity for audiences in both the UK and India, with support from Arts Council England. It is part of the UK/India Year of Culture, organised to mark the seventieth anniversary of Indian independence.
