About Asia House Arts and Learning

Asia House is the Centre of Expertise on Asia, and London’s most vibrant and creative hub for Asian arts and culture. It is completely unique in the UK in presenting a thought-provoking, pan-Asian artistic and cultural programme.

Through its Arts and Learning Programme, Asia House’s mission is to inspire and engage diverse audiences by encouraging dialogue aimed at finding common ground amongst different schools of thought on how to look at Asia’s historical and cultural development. This is done through a dynamic series of live events; from panel discussions to music, dance, performance, visual art, film, food, fashion and literature. Working closely with arts practitioners, educational specialists and cultural partners we aim to encourage a platform for meaningful cultural engagement with our audiences.

With the generous support of the Bagri Foundation, the annual Asia House Bagri Foundation Literature Festival, has become the signature arts festival at Asia House and a highlight of the year-round literature programme. The festival was established with the aim of presenting a range of events, panel discussions and in-conversations around words, stories and ideas from Asia and the diaspora. It brings together some of the biggest names and rising stars from the literary world for a celebration of the best of Asian literature, here in the heart of London.
