Professor Rajinder Dudrah (Principal Investigator, BCU), Dr Vishal Chauhan (Co-Investigator, PGDAV College University of Delhi) and Dr Julia Szivak (BCU) successfully completed their 9-month AHRC and Innovate UK funded project ‘India-UK Creative Industries at 75: Opportunities and Challenges’ (1 Feb – 31 October 2022, £49,400).

The project culminated in new networks of research and creative production between Birmingham City University, PGDAV College University of Delhi, and over 30 India-UK creatives working across the screen industries, live performance, and fashion.

Over 15 new creative outputs have been produced (short films, a podcast, music videos, a documentary, dance, presentations on the fashion industries, tribal tattoos & more) and they can be accessed on the project’s website.

The illustrated end of project reports are also available as free downloads. The summary report has been translated into 6 Indian languages (Bangla, Hindi, Marathi, Punjabi, Tamil and Telugu). Where relevant, please share these with your creative networks, researchers, teachers, students, parents, policy wallahs etc.
