Are you an artist trying to figure out how to speak about issues relating to gender that are close to your heart? Are you an activist, researcher, trainer, organiser, cultural enthusiast, college student, or simply a student of life wanting to speak in an artistic, creative way about gender, and how it intersects with caste, class, religion, ethnicity, work, leisure, dis/ability, biology, desire or much more? Or someone who wants to talk about gender in the context of the environment, economy, governance or nationalism/s? Then the Gender. Kala. Aur Hum workshops may be just the thing for you. 

A series of three art appreciation workshops, each with a specific artform as its focus through which they will look at issues of gendered lives and living. The workshops will deconstruct various artworks to understand how they address diverse concerns and issues, and help you think through how you may want to use these or other artforms to express yourself. 

Objectives of the workshop series:

  1. Review contemporary Indian feminist artworks together

  2. Discover some global feminist art and artists 

  3. Explore the intersections of political art around gender

  4. Discuss creative ideas of participants

Gender. Kala. Aur Hum. organised by the reFrame Institute of Art and Expression, New Delhi in collaboration with Lamakaan - The Open Cultural Centre, Hyderabad, is for all of you.
