Voices Of Asia

Event, Exhibition (permanent) 1 November 2014 - 1 November 2018
    • Voices of Asia is a spectacular new gallery at Leeds City Museum which celebrates the sights, sounds, and culture of Asia and the Asian communities that live right here on our doorstep in Leeds. Journey through the world’s largest continent by exploring seven themes from Faiths & Festivals to Trade & War, Fashion & Style to Music, Dance, Theatre & Film to Eating Out & Eating In and Faith in Focus. The title ‘Voices of Asia’ was deliberately chosen to represent the many Asian communities that live within the city, the different languages spoken in the continent, and passion for contemporary film that will be incorporated in the new displays. The displays, which have been planned in partnership with local Asian community groups and a local Advisory Network, will stay in the space for around five years, but will change annually to reflect different projects, themes and world faiths
