29 March 2021

A free outdoor exhibition capturing the world’s oldest trade route, with travel photographer Christopher Wilton-Steer will feature at the Aga Khan Centre from 8 April to 16 June. Comprised of over 160 photographs, The Silk Road: A Living History invites visitors to take the journey, to encounter fascinating people, places and cultures along the way. The Silk Road: A Living History exhibition celebrates the diversity of cultural expression found along the route, highlighting how historical practices, rituals and customs live on today. Created with the Aga Khan Foundation, the show also seeks to engender interest and understanding between distant cultures and challenge perceptions of less well-known and understood parts of the world.
