In collaboration with Project Pakistan.

Join us as Amardeep Singh shares his journies and experiences on Exploring the Sikh Legacy in Pakistan & the Social-Cultural Impact of the Partition. During a personal visit to Pakistan in 2014, a journey that took him across 36 cities and villages, Amardeep felt it was important for posterity to document his explorations. In Jan 2017, he undertook another journey, traveling extensively to 90 cities and villages across Sindh, Balochistan, Pakistan Administered Kashmir, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and Panjab.
Amardeep has documented these journies to motivate all communities to become aware of their past and, through it, learn to live in harmony.

This shared journey will be followed by a Q&A moderated by Dr. Mona Kazim Shah & Dr. Pritpal Singh.

Exploring Sikh Legacy in Pakistan: A visual talk that shares the motivation and the need to document for posterity, a legacy that churned in the lands that became Pakistan.

Socio-Cultural Impact of the Partition: A visual talk that evaluates the remnants across Pakistan and provides insights into the mindset of the past generation and compares it to where we stand today.
