UK Exhibition

Beyond the Frame was delighted to continue the UK tour of the original ‘Making Britain’ project touring panel exhibition ‘South Asians Making Britain, 1858-1950’ in partnership with the British Library. The display focused on a wide range of South Asian-British networks and interactions including South Asian contributions to sport, the arts, domestic, cultural and intellectual life, resistance and activism, as well as national and global politics. Developed from ‘Making Britain’s’ extensive research, it examined a wealth of new material from archives in India, Sri Lanka, the United States and Britain. From September 2010, when the first phase of the project ended, the UK exhibition tour was co-ordinated and supported by The Open University and The British Library.
