British Asian Art Fair

Call for entries 

Building on the success of the UK's first-ever Asian Woman Festival, we are proud to present the first British Asian Art Fair, founded by our Arts and Exhibition Manager Kam Panesar. 


Our 2020 festival is going to be bigger and bolder and the theme for the festival is 'honour'. We will be exploring the concept of honour throughout the exhibition and whilst submissions based on the theme is ideal – anything goes! After all, we are here to celebrate British Asian Art in all its glory. 

We are accepting entries from a range of disciplines including:

  • fine art

  • sculpture

  • photography

  • ceramics

  • illustration

  • textiles

  • glass

  • jewellery 

  • digital media

So, if you're looking for an opportunity to exhibit your artwork – this is your chance to be part of something amazing!

In addition to our festival exhibition, we will also be working with other venues across the West Midlands region and exhibit selected pieces– venue listings will be revealed later in the year. 

We are working on a separate project for artists based outside of the UK - this will be announced soon.
