Digital Collaborations Programme

Developed in response to Covid-19, the Transforming Narratives Digital Collaborations Programme links Bangladesh, Pakistan and Birmingham through creative digital projects.

Creative and cultural practitioners in the three countries received grants worth a total of £75,000 to create new work. The projects, which span visual arts, music, dance, theatre and combined arts, were created during autumn 2020 to spring 2021.

A new film, edited by Birmingham artist Amrit Singh, tells the story of this remarkable programme.
