The Adivasi Arts Trust has organised exhibitions of photography and art in collaboration with galleries and institutions.

Dr Verrier Elwin’s life (1902-1964) was exceptional and eventful. Born in England he attended Oxford University.  A religious calling brought him to India in 1927where he sought first to make personal reparation for colonial domination, which he perceived as unjust. It was his contact and close association with Mahatma Gandhi, which diverted him from the path of evangelism, a decision that led to his departure from the church, to the world of anthropology and the tribes of India.
