Established in 2011, Inspirate is a diverse-led organisation that has produced a plethora of arts festivals and events, delivering culturally dynamic experiences to audiences from across the country. We connect people from all walks of life with inspiring creative experiences - our aim is to ambitiously pioneer a new and inclusive approach to culture, where the ‘door is open to all'.
Our organisation is driven by 3 principles that are at the core of our decision-making, ways of working and define what always should be the Inspirate experience:
We believe in the ability that the arts has to connect to people. These connections are the glue that drives culture forward. We connect with our audience through our lived experience.
Culture is not stagnant. New approaches and new voices are always relevant in our work. We work with our artists, partners and audiences to innovate inspiring creative experiences.
We will never have reached enough people. We are relentlessly ambitious about the impact our work can achieve. We will always punch above what is expected of us and remain approachable to all.
About An Indian Summer
One of the UK's driving forces of contemporary South Asian arts & culture - An Indian Summer has brought to life the sights, sounds and wonders of South Asia in the heart of Britain. Our events have aimed to inspire a new generation of 21st century diverse arts and culture - nurturing exciting artistic experiences, collaborations and connecting people creatively through live performances, visual arts, film, food, wellbeing and creative education.
Our mission is to celebrate the shared culture between the Indian subcontinent and the UK - nurturing exciting artistic collaborations and creatively educating people from all walks of life about the past, present and future of our global community. Established in 2011, our programmes have constantly pushed the boundaries of what a contemporary South Asian Mela should be.
In recent years, we have begun taking our best events to new destinations across the country, including collaborations in London and Birmingham, as well as running online events that have engaged audiences from over 90 countries across the world. From August 2021 - December 2022, we will be producing a multitude of activities that will take place across 6 major cities.
2022 will be a momentous year for South Asian arts, culture and heritage - marking the 75th anniversary of partition and independence, as well as the 50th anniversary of Ugandan Asian migration to the UK. These globally significant events have shaped modern Britain and we will be exploring these incredible stories through our presentations next year.
