Led by volunteers from the local community, the Bhangra Renaissance heritage project focuses on the origins of the dance form of Bhangra and its impact on the identity and shared heritage of participants involved. VIRSA (which means heritage in Punjabi) is a not-for-profit community group made up of young professionals and volunteers from the community who aim to research, practice and celebrate the heritage of South Asian Arts in Kirklees. Working with a range of services from the museums and libraries to the sports development teams and local schools, colleges as well as the university, we aim to strengthen the understanding and the preservation of memories based around Bhangra, a folk dance from the Indian sub-continent.

Through this project we will be able to give participants a richer sense of identity and a deeper understanding of the cultural heritage of Bhangra. The project will also be an opportunity to develop new bonds, understanding and fellowships with members of the wider community through the dissemination of the project, its research and findings in creative new and interactive ways.
We are requesting work that reflects the theme of Bhangra to be exhibited alongside work produced throughout the project. There is also chance for your work to be used in a book that will be produced alongside the exhibition. The exhibition will then be toured for another year around key cities throughout the United Kingdom and then brought back to be part of a major exhibition in April 2014. All artists will be fully credited with any work given and we would like an artists profile displayed alongside your work so that anyone wanting to contact you can do so directly.
