Barber Institute Community Open Day

The Barber Institute, University of Birmingham, Edgbaston, Birmingham, B15 2TS

Come along to the Barber on Community Open Day for a day filled with free arts activities and events.

Among the activities will be three artists from Sampad, as part of the ‘Dancing about Sculpture’ residency. With artistic direction from Piali Ray, three artists have worked together to produce an interactive dance, spoken word and visual art piece, inspired by the Barber’s collection of sculpture.

Devika Rao will perform bharatantyam dance, Ravi Deepres will showcase visual art and Siddhartha Bose will perform spoken word to make creative connections between ancient Indian myths, legendary epics and stories and the mythical characters on display in the Barber galleries.
