The Warli people are an indigenous tribal group living in the mountainous and coastal areas of the Maharashtra-Gujarat border in India. They are famous for their tradition of painting, ceramics and textiles based on practices stretching back to around 3,000 BC.

During an international artists exchange residency earlier this year, a group of UK designers, sculptors, architects, ceramicists and other creatives were welcomed into the village of Bapugaon in Maharastra, where they collaborated with local artists and craftspeople to imagine a new space for the preservation, development and promotion of Warli art and culture. The project culminated in the creation of an arts centre in Bapugaon which will be recreated for BCB 2017, featuring paintings, film works, sculptural pieces, ceramics and sound works.

Heart:Beat is presented at The Potteries Museum & Art Gallery and the former Methodist Bethesda Chapel, just across the road.
