COME! This is supposed to be a welcome message. But I’d rather give you a snapshot of things that have happened so far: For three months in 2006, the city of Lille in France transformed itself into Mumbai via a festival called Lille3000. Encountered by team member Pritesh Varia, the idea was introduced of bringing a similar concept to Leicester. We did. We had a great team. We started with a single venue, still our home venue, Phoenix. It was fantastic! The next year, we expanded out to seven venues. We grew, we held some great shows, we had some not so great shows. One year, we were washed out by rain, but the year after we came back to the warmth of the Sun. We continued to grow. The team continued to grow. You guys, our audience continued to grow. And now Year 4 is upon us. All I can leave you with is two pieces of advice: Plan your #aisfestival weekend well by studying the guide. And stay in Leicester if you can because it is going to be like catching a train at 8am rush hour at Dadar Station, Mumbai. Google it! Look forward to seeing you there‌

Exhibitions The Web of Water

River Studies

Phoenix - Cube

River Studies is an ongoing artistic research project that explores how rivers affect people and cultures. It uses a variety of unique, custom methods that blend photography, data visualisation, cartography and cultural mapping to create films, prints and interactive artworks. Rivers play a vital role in each landscape through which they flow. Their basins give life to the land that surrounds them and they are a key economic resource - a site for trade, transport and religious worship. But they also draw pollution, violence and warfare, acting as borders as well as places of connection. Rivers have had a long and complex relationship with human society, carving pathways that accumulate history and identity. How much of it is reflected by their appearance? Some differences are inevitable: urban and rural areas, changes in vegetation, the number of barrages and power plants. But there are also more gradual and subtle differences to discover and explore.

ArtCore / Water Aid Curve

The birth of understanding Live art performance Ashok Mistry A live art piece in which people are invited to participate in creating an ephemeral drawing using coloured sand, salt, rice, stones and other aggregate materials through direction and ritual.

An accompaniment to “River Studies� which details India’s river systems and the demography of religions and languages.

Every so often the artist moves people, erases parts of the design, destroys and reforms the drawing using ritual. As the piece builds the audience take more and more control over the drawing as they build relationships with others in the audience. The finished artwork is then destroyed ritually in an act of common understanding.

What Could Our research changes the world. With a choice of courses to match your ambitions, start your journey of discovery at one of the UK’s top 20 universities.

www.le.ac.uk/study

All events are FREE of charge unless stated otherwise.


We think a university should be about

empowering people to explore what they don’t know through passionate, dedicated teaching and innovative, world-changing research.

By embracing the fact that we’re all coming at it from a slightly different place, and that every journey is personal, we’ve managed to achieve some remarkable results in our time. We believe that the best universities are not just the privilege of elites. We’re proof that you can stand alongside the best and open up the competition for everyone. We are the only university to win seven consecutive Times Higher Awards. The Times Higher Education applauded our very different approach, describing us as “elite without being elitist”. We’re the only top twenty university to consistently meet Government benchmarks for the recruitment of students from state education and socio-economic disadvantage. Our ground-breaking researchers unearthed the remains of Richard III, invented DNA finger printing and scanned the surface of Mars. We’re also an integral part of the local community. We contribute £729 million to the national economy with much of that impact being felt here in Leicester. We work closely with local partners such as schools and charities to ensure that all residents have the opportunity to feel benefits of our facilities and activities. We also support the efforts of our many staff and students who volunteer locally. It’s our commitment to the city of Leicester as well as our passion for discovery and diversity that makes us proud to support An Indian Summer. This festival helps residents discover more about India while also celebrating the diversity of our vibrant city.
