As promised, here's a random selection of photographs from my recent trip to Kolkata in India! The reason why I visited was to attend a conference on Urban Changes and Culture, alongside other young people from Germany, Africa, India and England. I was selected along with another member of CreateVoice, the young people's forum at the V&A, so it was pretty darn special to be representing both the UK and the museum itself. My time there was spent in discussions focusing on the role of cultural institutions in our local cities and how they can be shaped in the future, discussing issues with experts from around the world, along with going on walking tours and visiting museums, with of course a little free time inbetween! I was unfortunately rather ill throughout the whole trip and visiting Kolkata was quite the culture shock for me, but it was a great experience and I'm so happy I was chosen to attend. It was amazing to meet so many people from different cultures and so fun to spend time with such a lovely group of people.
If you'd like to see some more photographs you can take a peek here, plus if you have any questions regarding the trip or conference please do ask away! Love, Jazzabelle.
