E_invite_photo exhibitonLeprosy is one of the world’s oldest diseases. Although completely curable today, the age-old stigma attached to leprosy continues to have an impact on people’s lives. India accounts for over 60 percent of annual new cases of leprosy and is home to around 800 self-settled leprosy colonies.

OUR LIVES introduces residents of four such colonies and their experience of leprosy. It also features photos of persons affected by leprosy in 40 other countries and invites viewers to stop and dwell on what it means to live.

Date: April 20 – May 1, 2018, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily (including weekends & holidays)
Venue: Art Gallery, Kamaladevi Complex, Gate No1, India International Centre, 40 Max Mueller Marg, New Delhi 110003

Organized by India International Centre in collaboration with The Nippon Foundation, Sasakawa-India Leprosy Foundation and Embassy of Japan
