Prospective Partners: IIT Kharagpur, British Library, British Council, West Bengal Government, Jute Corporation of India
Vision and Objectives
Our vision is to promote Bengal’s Heritage, Art, Crafts, Festival, Food, and Culture in the UK.

Bengal has one of the richest, most distinctive and vibrant cultures in India, expressed through art, architecture, music, literature, cinema, dance, cuisine, textiles, and festivals. Indian Bengalis are a large and culturally active group in the UK, and this project will create opportunities to showcase and experience these rich and diverse traditions.
