New Homes for Old Stories – Symposium/workshop in Mumbai, 5 February


3 January 2017

A symposium/workshop, 5 February 2017, 3-6pm

Artisans Gallery, Mumbai

To coincide with issue #5 of Garland magazine, a discussion and workshop will be conducted on the nature of storytelling through objects. This will involve a review of the traditional stories attached to objects and the new platforms emerging in e-commerce. The challenge is to find a way in which the online market can sustain some of the rich narratives previously transmitted through oral traditions. What are the components of a good story? How can we add narrative value to handmade objects today? If you are interested to be part of this event, please send an expression of interest to by 16 January.
