A Garden of Reflection Session with Masoom Parmar

Speakers
Masoom Parmar
Independent artist | Founder Director at Alif Arts Consultancy • he/they

A Garden of reflection is a space to gather, to come together to read, listen and share.
Every week we will invite a guest to bring in some material as a provocation to start a conversation through personal stories and sharing. Over the weeks we will speak around themes of love, friendships, gender, caste, religion through the lens of identity and citizenship.
These sessions are free, participatory and open to all.
We have very limited seats on a first come, first serve basis.
To join, just sign up via the link in our bio.

A Sandbox Collective project in partnership with the Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan Bangalore


ABOUT THE SESSION:


As a queer, part-Muslim, male, Bharatanatyam dancer, Masoom Parmar navigates through many Indias in his work and his personal life. In this session he will share personal anecdotes to talk about ancestry and belonging. Using a partition survivor's interview as a prompt, and starting point, we will discuss what citizenship, secularism and the idea of home means in today's world.
