British envoy in Kolkata

The Silk River project explores the unique relationship between London and Kolkata. Working at 20 locations alongside the Hooghly and the Thames to reinterpret a shared heritage, Silk River aims to raise cultural awareness about the Indo-British relationship by engaging diaspora communities. The 20 scrolls, exhibited at the Central Hall of Victoria Memorial Hall from December 19 to December 31, is part of a collaborative effort—between Kinetika, UK, and its various Indian partners, including ThinkArts, Murshidabad Heritage Development Society, Crafts Council of India West Bengal and West Bengal Tourism. It is supported by the Arts Council England and the British Council.
