About the Event
The arts are primarily seen as entertainment, yet their influence on attitudes and mind sets, fashion and foibles are well documented. In most ancient cultures, the arts were the primary source of education and socialising, creating pathways to direct individuals to the understanding of good and bad, civil and uncivil, ethical and unethical behaviour.
Darpana has been at the forefront of using the arts for social change, for the last forty years, inventing new forms and adapting traditional ones to create awareness and help question prejudices that reduce humanity to divided, frightened and unhealthy groups hating each other and forever trying to diminish others for perceived personal gain.
Dr Sarabhai will share her journey in using the arts to make a difference in the world.
