Sampad South Asian Arts & Heritage

Sharing our Cannon Hill Home, Sampad connects people and communities with British Asian arts and heritage and plays a cutting-edge role in the creative economy.

Sampad believes in the power of arts and heritage to impact widely on all communities – breaking down barriers, raising important issues, amplifying unheard voices and bringing people from all walks of life together.

Now in its 28th year, the organisation continues to play an instrumental role in promoting and encouraging British Asian arts, so that they progress, break new ground and enrich mainstream culture in the UK. Sampad supports, commissions and co-produces a huge variety of arts and heritage activities inspired by diverse artforms that originate from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

It has a strong track record of delivering high-quality dance, music and theatre productions, events and workshops in education, community and outreach settings and professional development for artists, cultural leaders and young people.
