The histories of Britain and India have long been interwoven. Embedded within this complex relationship are fascinating yet forgotten stories of how the historic Indian presence in Britain has critically shaped the island nation we know today. ‘At the Heart of the Nation: India in Britain’, to coincide with the 70th anniversary of India’s Independence, will celebrate these unknown narratives through a stunning photographic exhibition. The exhibition, led by the Open University, in collaboration with the Indian High Commission, the Nehru Centre, and the University of Exeter, launches in August 2017, and will tour until December 2017 and will be showcased around the United Kingdom, including in London and Edinburgh.
