About

“In an increasingly diverse society, art creates the spaces for a richer and deeper intercultural dialogue. In times of social anxiety and unrest, it grows reassurance and respect. In an age of austerity, it feeds the heart and mind. Sampad has more to offer now than at any other point in its twenty years history of artistic endeavor.” Ranjit Sondhi, Chair of Sampad

Established in 1990, sampad is a dynamic development agency for South Asian arts based in Birmingham, in the UK. It plays a significant role regionally, nationally and beyond, in promoting the appreciation and practice of the diverse artforms originating from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. Through its work sampad serves, supports and initiates South Asian arts in all its forms working with youth, community, education and professional artists.
