FIPA, the Foundation for Indian Performing Arts, has been awarded a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund for a project that will explore the history of British South Asian Theatre since the 1970s.

This one year oral history project will uncover a treasure of memories from key practitioners in the world of British South Asian Theatre.  Through these, we discover how Asian culture has contributed to the diversity of British society through creative performing arts as well as exploring more sensitive social issues in the UK over the past 57 years.

Running from the start of 2013 for just over a year, this project will involve volunteers in recording and digitising histories from early playwrights to directors, to be made accessible to the public in an online collection at the British Library.

Volunteers will be given training in oral history techniques and opportunities in collecting interviews, creating the online resource of interviews and organising an exhibition.

To learn all about the project and how you can become involved,

Please contact:  Hi Ching on 07846614691,
