Wednesday 28th 4.30-5.30pm (GMT) / 10-11pm (IST)

Live from India

An introduction to the spirals of Warli, a tribal art form from India! Warli art was the only means of transmitting folklore to a populace not acquainted with the written word.

Replete with depictions of the way of life of the Warli people. The simple, childlike depiction of ‘characters’ is a trademark of this style, often made into a beautiful spiral design. We’re going to dive into this pastoral life and then move step-by-step as we learn to create an artwork which helps us identify with their simplistic outlook on life. You’ll end up with a striking Warli artwork of your own!

 

Bandara Agarwal is a multi-disciplinary artist who loves working with lines, forms, colours and textures. At present, she engages with folk arts from across the world – with a special focus on India. She designs and conducts experiential workshops, giving a contemporary bent to heritage arts’n’crafts; with a strong belief that as we step out to be global citizens we need to stay connected to our roots.

Latin American Song with Camilo Menjura

1-2pm (GMT)

Get those vocal chords warmed up and ready for harmonies, melodies & grooves from Latin America and other corners of the world!

 

Camilo, who has been part of the Doris family for over 13 years, will be bringing a selection of tunes that will have us singing out loud and feeling that sense of belonging & community that we all deeply miss in these rather strange times. Join us!
