2017 marks 70 years since the independence of India and the creation of modern Pakistan. The events of 1947 are an important part of the cultural memory of the faith communities that were fractured, yet stories of altruism, bravery and courage have often been underrepresented.

70 years on, this event will explore memories of the once-united community and ask how we can work to build bridges and develop lasting intercommunity relations, both within the South Asian Diaspora and in the subcontinent.

The Grand Trunk Project has been developed in partnership with faith leaders, community activists and facilitated by the Faiths Forum for London. Seeking inspiration from the ancient and unifying Grand Trunk Road which runs across the subcontinent, the project aims to build common ground and open up a much needed dialogue.

This event will explore crucial stories of coexistence and the importance of developing lasting relationships across diverse faith communities through a programme of performance, poetry, discussion and film.

Presented in collaboration with The Grand Trunk Project.
