Designed a series of
annual workshops around multi-disciplinary,
multi-centered cultural appraisal course for college
students in Mumbai and Pune. Mid ‘90s when the nation
was still reeling under the impact of the first grave
and systematic attack on the pluralist culture of India,
in the form of Babri Masjid demolition and the
consequent communal riots, this course was designed to
re-create an ambience of knowledge and production as
against faith and reception. The week long workshops
were designed as a hand-on exercise in academic and
practices facilitated by the best of the academics and
art practitioners of the country.
