Rooted in Collaboration: Institutions, Infrastructures and Interventions on Craft is a public in-person programme inspired by the latest exhibition ‘mul mathi//from the roots’, a successful collaboration between the Chanakya School of Craft, celebrated artists Manu and Madhvi Parekh and Maria Grazia, Creative Director of the House of Dior and Asia Society India Centre.
For the second programme in our ongoing series In Practice: New Vocabularies for Craft, join our panellists Jesmina Zeliang, founder of Heirloom Naga; Vishpala Hundekari, the founder of Eki Beki and co-founder of Creative Dignity; and Sudheer Rajbhar, founder of Chamar Studio, as they take a deeper dive towards understanding some of these questions and exploring the collective role of both non-profit and for-profit institutions in supporting, sustaining and building advocacy for craft-based communities. The focus of this discussion is not only on the role of the makers; instead, it aims to deliberate on the benefits and struggles of other stakeholders in creating this collaborative bridge and how it can potentially augment livelihoods and foster creative empowerment within our artisan communities. The panel discussion will be moderated by Radha Mahendru, Director of Strategic Initiatives and Development at Asia Society India Centre.
