British Council, the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities, along with the National Institute of Design is hosting From Where I Stand, a new exhibition of prints and multimedia artworks featuring the work of seven contemporary artists from India and Scotland, as a part of the Future Flow fellowship. New commissions will be displayed alongside existing works in print, video, and installation at the British Council in Delhi from 11 March through 26 March, as well as in Edinburgh in 2024. The exhibit is a part of the India/UK Together, Season of Culture – a programme of Arts, English and Education that celebrates India’s 75th anniversary and builds on the British Council’s commitment to creating opportunities between the two countries.

The Future Flow project, developed by Edinburgh Printmakers in collaboration with Flow India, sees 18 young artists from Scotland and India collaborate to deliver a new exhibition and series of public events as part of the British Council’s India/UK Together, a Season of Culture. The project collaborated with India’s National Institute of Design, Edinburgh Napier University, Edinburgh College of Art, and Queen Margaret University to form this cohort of young fellows, artists, and printmakers from Scotland and India to co-create the exhibition.

Alison Barrett MBE, Director India, British Council, said, “We are excited to bring the collaborative exhibition ‘From Where I Stand’ to British Council Delhi as part of our ongoing ‘India/UK Together Season of Culture’. This exhibition is a result of Future Flow, a fellowship where young adults from UK and India interested in curating and producing art exhibitions were mentored to develop curatorial and leadership skills and co-produce a group print exhibition examining the relationships between people, objects, and home. The fellowship was created by Flow India and Edinburgh Printmakers and brought together young designers and curators, bringing alive the Season of Culture theme of “Together” and its emphasis on building creative partnerships, new contacts, and new opportunities for artists and audiences.”
