Celebrating women, freedom and equality

The Bangalore International Centre is celebrating women, freedom and equality with day-long events that highlight the strengths and vulnerabilities of women and busts myths and stereotypes of gender. Art, music, photography, theatre, books, discussions, films, workshops and food, there is something for everyone.

The events start in the morning at 10:30 and run through out the day. Here are some events:

Self Reimagined- A photo exhibition by Clare Arni

The photographs in the exhibition are from a workshop Clare Arni and Varuni Mohan conducted with the class 9 girls of RBANMS High School, Bengaluru. They discussed themes of women’s empowerment in an Indian context and looked at Indian women achievers throughout history to learn about how they succeeded in their various fields in what was a male-dominated society. They also examined cultural definitions of beauty and fairness, the preference for the boy child and what roles are expected of them as women. Clare then created a pop-up studio within the school and took photographs of the girls to further explore these themes.

This exhibition extends to the next day – Monday 9th March 2020.

Funky Rainbow- The Travelling Children’s Bookshop

Funky Rainbow will hold workshops for children and adults, and set up a reading corner with a colourful, curated collection of children’s books.

Panel discussions, film screening, music and theatre
