BADA Launch Event

Bangladeshi Artist Development Agency

This event has passed

Join us to celebrate the launch of the first ever Bangladeshi Artists Development Agency – BADA in the West Midlands.

This will be a memorable evening of performance and celebration by Bangladeshi heritage artists for the city’s vibrant communities.

We will be sharing BADA’s vision and an exciting programme of poetry, music, dance and exhibition by local Bangladeshi artists, showcasing for the first time at The Rep, followed by a showstopping performance by the fabulous Sohini Alam and Khiyo.

BADA was conceived in January 2023 by Legacy West Midlands in partnership with local Bangladeshi artists and organisations, as well as established cultural organisations, to collectively support the growing Bangladeshi artist community and audiences.

This is an exciting time for Bangladeshi heritage artists and creatives, and we hope you will join us and be amongst the first to hear about our plans for the Bangla Week Festival in 2024.
