Vaacha - The Museum of Voice
Museumization of culture is not on the academy’s agenda. Vaachaa 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 dynamical displays of adivasi expressions, both artistic and cultural, in the form of objects, artifacts, performances and digitized multimedia images. The Museum is seen as the 'laboratory' for contemporary ethnic, anthropological and artistic studies carried out from the perspective of adivasis themselves. It is conceptualized as a unique Museum of Voice and the largest resource centre of Tribal Culture in India.
