Expressing Anger Through Art: British Sikh Artists On 1984

This film collates some of the interviews conducted by Dr Jasjit Singh for the AHRC Connected Communities project ‘(r)agency? Lived Practices of Anger’.

The aim of the project was to examine what brings people to experience their anger about an issue in a productive or transformative way.

In this part of the project, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), Dr Jasjit Singh examined how young British Sikh artists expressed their feelings about the storming of the Golden Temple in June 1984 and the subsequent anti-Sikh violence in Delhi in Nov 1984. He interviewed British Sikh artists whose artistic work includes expressions about the events of 1984.
