Prepare to be challenged. Inspired by their exhibition Another India: Explorations and Expressions of Indigenous South Asia, the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology explores stories of struggles and resistance from South Asia's Adivasi (Indigenous) communities. Join us for an evening of experimental film and music, critical stories and hands-on encounters with the crafts of Indian artists. Take in the displays after dark, debate their stories over a drink and challenge the stories that museums tell.
