Pop Samiti 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018 2019


Before frank brazil there was Pop Samiti.
Pop Samiti was a publication and platform for a group of artists, writers and activists. A curated space to think about some big questions.

Over two years I worked with a group of talented people and Pop Samiti took form.

The project received no state funding or sponsorship. All the contributions were voluntary. This was an independent production. 

Pop Samiti launched at a public event in central London in August 2009, we made history. 

This August to celebrate 10 years of Pop Samiti I'll be posting notes, thoughts about the project. Follow on Twitter frank_brazil and Instagram tajender_k_sagoo or visit the project website.



 "According to UN projections by 2025 the population of South Asia* will be an estimated 1.9 bn.
How will this massive population explosion define us as South Asians? What do we have to say? What will be the response of artists, writers, activists and thinkers to this phenomenon? What narratives will emerge and who will define them? What will be the impact on the lives of the South Asians overseas."
