About Vaacha: Museum of Voice

Museumization of culture is not on the Academy’s agenda. Vaacha functions more as a forum and a platform for expression of Adivasi creativity. It offers intellectual space for Adivasis interested in documenting social practices, and creating dynamic displays of Adivasi expressions, both artistic and cultural, in the form of objects, artefacts, performances and digitized multimedia images. Vaacha is a 'laboratory' for contemporary ethnic, anthropological and artistic studies carried out from the perspective of Adivasis themselves and has evolved as the largest resource centre of Adivasi Culture in India.
