Gender. Kala. Aur Hum
Sat Aug 3, 2:30 PM
reFrame institute or art and expression
Are you an artist trying to figure out how to speak about issues relating to gender that are close to your heart? Are you an activist, researcher, trainer, organiser, cultural enthusiast, college student, or simply a student of life wanting to speak in an artistic, creative way about gender, and how it intersects with caste, class, religion, ethnicity, work, leisure, dis/ability, biology, desire or much more? Or someone who wants to talk about gender in the context of the environment, economy, governance or nationalism/s? Then the Gender. Kala. Aur Hum workshops may be just the thing for you.

A series of three art appreciation workshops, each with a specific artform as its focus through which they will look at issues of gendered lives and living. The workshops will deconstruct various artworks to understand how they address diverse concerns and issues, and help you think through how you may want to use these or other artforms to express yourself.
