Gandhara Connections is a new project by the Classical Art Research Centre. Generously supported by the Bagri Foundation and the Neil Kreitman Foundation, the project is intended to aid and advance the study of Gandharan art and its fascinating connections with Greek and Roman culture. We aim to move forward debates about Gandharan art, its chronology, its local geography, and its 'international' connections, not only with the classical world, but with other ancient regions. We will also be creating permanent aids for understanding Gandharan art, to help academics, students, curators, artists, archaeologists, and anyone else interested in better understanding this extraordinary artistic tradition.
Over the next three years we will be holding international workshops and a variety of public events. We will also be producing open access online publications and creating other resources on this website. To follow the project's progress as these events and resources develop, please sign up to our email list or follow us through Twitter or Facebook.
