Performing Protest: Staging Change through Art

27 October 2017 5:00 PM

How does art help in configuring spaces of dissent? Can different forms of expression create new imaginations and possibilities for a better future?

Godrej India Culture Lab is proud to present Performing Protest: Staging Change through Art, an event that will explore these questions through three incredible speakers who use their art forms in powerful ways to change society.

Join Fathima Nizaruddin, Sofia Ashraf, and Mohammad Muneem Nazir as they discuss their working processes and the nature of their engagement with the idea of protest. Fathima brings a short theatre performance and her incredible film Nuclear Hallucinations which is centered on the anti-nuclear struggle against the Kudankulam Atomic Power Project in Tamil Nadu. Sofia Ashraf will speak about her engagement with various movements and also screen her short form videos which are made to spread over social media. Mohammad Muneem will perform music and recite poetry from the Valley that brings people together and keeps alive the hope of a brighter future.

Through these discussions, screenings as well as performances, Performing Protest will initiate a conversation about how art work together with marches, hunger strikes and other forms of resistance help in creating change.

Please come and bring your friends and family along. You don’t want to miss this one.
