Sampad’s mission is to connect people with South Asian and British Asian Arts and Heritage, and to play a cutting-edge role in the creative economy.

Sampad believes in the power of arts and heritage to impact widely on all communities towards bringing people together from all walks of life.

Celebrating South Asian Arts & Heritage 
Breaking down barriers
Amplifying unheard voices

Moving beyond 30 years, we continue to play an instrumental role in promoting and encouraging British Asian arts, so that they progress, break new ground and enrich mainstream culture in the UK. We support, commission and co-produce a huge variety of arts and heritage activities inspired by diverse artforms that originate from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

We have a strong track record of delivering high-quality dance, music and theatre productions, digital events and workshops in education, community and outreach settings. We also provide professional development for artists, cultural leaders and young people.

We’re an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation, which means funding thanks to taxpayers plays a huge part in supporting our work. We receive kind support from Birmingham City Council and work closely and strategically with Midlands Arts Centre, where we are based.

Sampad is also a member of Culture Central – a collective voice for culture in Birmingham.
