This exhibition presents a selection of the results of a visual arts and community engagement project in 2018-9 that explores the meaning and practice of “heritage” in the Punjab, a linguistic and cultural region divided in 1947 between the two successor states to British colonial rule, Pakistan and India, and connects this heritage to Canada. The exhibition by the South Asian Canadian Histories Association (SACHA) in partnership with the University of British Columbia, is represented by Anne Murphy (Asian Studies/co-Director, Centre for India and South Asia Research), as a part of a larger overall project that was originally initiated through a grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) UK. By pursuing this project here in Vancouver and at UBC, we hope to enhance UBC South Asian community engagement through community-based art work, helping an international project come “home” to BC.

This exhibition will be on display in the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre’s Level 2 foyer from September 1st to 30th, 2019.
