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. This is our way of bringing into the world a type of identity that is still being made. Our first series was based in Kochi, Southern India, and our second comes from Indonesia.
