Simurgh Centre

The Simurgh Centre is a cultural space for collaborations and conversations between Afghan, German, and Indian artists. We seek to support, explore and share the work of Afghans, mostly those living in Delhi, and create connections with audiences and discourse across the world.

Letters to Time: Writings on Afghanistan

Early in the summer, we asked a diverse set of Afghans living across the world to write about the changes playing out in the country. As they wrote, events moved unexpectedly and at a rapid pace. Framing this crucial time, these are the voices of a journalist and a visual artist; a student who chose to travel back from Delhi to Kabul at a time of rising uncertainty, and a filmmaker trying to get his family to safety.

About the Project

An audio project that taps into the voices of the Afghan community in Delhi, through the summer of 2021. Set against the backdrop of the Covid -19 pandemic, it is a record of emotions, memories and music, as well as sounds from streets and homes. A city symphony, composed by its residents.
