Science meets the arts at J-PAL South Asia’s "Shaping Policy, Transforming Lives"—celebrating two decades of J-PAL’s fight against poverty across the world.

J-PAL’s pioneering approach towards finding solutions to the world’s greatest challenges through rigorous research won our co-founders the 2019 Nobel Prize in Economics. 

We have been committed to developing a better understanding of how some of the most vulnerable people amongst us live their lives, the choices they make, and the different ways they overcome challenges. Our experiences are a rich source of stories—uplifting and empowering, but often unnoticed and untold.

Our immersive exhibition is a uniquely curated interactive showcase of such stories, told through the written word, photographs, and artefacts. They embody two decades of the transformative impact of evidence in improving the lives of people. 



The exhibition will be accompanied by an array of crafts, books, and merchandise curated by a series of J-PAL South Asia partners, including Pratham, Jeevika, Indus Action, Obeetee Carpets, SCARF, Seva Mandir, Farmers for Forests and Medha. 

Last, but not least, experience a one-of-a-kind dramatisation of our research—Where Science Meets Art: A production by Aagaaz Theatre Trust. 

‘Shaping Policy, Transforming Lives’ promises to be a visual and aural experience that will leave you amazed and inspired.

This exhibition is free and open to all.
