Cultural Connections with Duet

By on February 18, 2019

DUET was an ambitious piece of work about finding space for reflection, expression and connection in our daily lives. DUET anonymously connects participants from the UK and India, allowing them to build a unique relationship with someone on the other side of the world for up to a year. Participants are invited to exchange details of their lives by answering one question a day through an app. Prompted by duet, a participant gradually builds a picture of their partner and their surroundings through shared messages.

You were able to downloaded the app with both iPhone and Android.

People could tell us about their experiences of using the app on social media using the hashtag #DuetApp and see what else is going on during this year of cultural exchange through #UKIndia2017

DUET was a collaboration between Invisible Flock (UK) and Quicksand (India), check out the Duet App website for further details
