The Indian Ocean

The Indian Ocean is a series of stories that locates Centre for Stories in our geographic region. Crossing over national boundaries, this is work that seeks to articulate and express what life is like in our shared geography. We look at people on the ground and how they relate to larger structures weaving in stories of daily life with politics, culture and economics.
