We work in museums to provide interpretation of major collections, such as the Asia galleries in the British Museum and the Victoria & Albert Museum; or to enhance temporary exhibitions, for example within Asia House. We have developed projects with dancers and storytellers working in gallery spaces where interactive sessions bring people closer to the collections.
Akademi artists have contributed to study days, for example on Rabindranath Tagore; and to family learning initiatives, for example, the British Museum's Voices of Bengal season, where we created rangoli, photographic tableaux, and explored the history and tradition of South Asian costume.
We run workshops that highlight aspects of important art objects in museums and contribute to museums' evening events with professional performances, for example, for the Indian Summer season and the Garden and Cosmos: Royal Paintings of Jodhpur exhibition at the British Museum.
We often work with curators to devise creative workshops such as for the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the slave trade, Black History Month, and the 60th anniversary of India's partition.
