Akademi Heritage Project
Inspiring through our heritage
In 2020 we unearthed and celebrated Akademi’s vital contribution in establishing the dynamic South Asian dance sector that exists in the UK today.
In archiving key documents, digitising rare footage, teaching oral history skills, and collecting testimonials, this project connected our present to our past and then to our future. The project featured events, workshops and performances that celebrated Akademi’s history and inspired through our heritage.

Do you have documents, images, posters or other items that could enrich the Akademi archives? As we curate an archive of originals and copies for donation to the V&A Museum, we are seeking important ephemera from our community. Please email Shivaangee@akademi.co.uk if you have something that you think would be valuable to us.
