19 & 20 September, Saturday and Sunday
4.00 – 6.30 pm IST, on Zoom.
A statement repeated during this moment of pandemic and lockdown highlights this as a time to pause and seriously consider how we, collectively, proceed.
Manifestos have often served as a means by which individuals and groups state intentions. Could manifestos play a role in how we envision the future and move forward at this moment? We will discuss manifestos as a form, critically consider the problems and potentials of manifesto-making in our present moment. In this participatory workshop, we take as many steps as possible to construct our own manifestos.
This online workshop is free, participatory in nature and involves working in groups. It will happen over two days and interested participants are expected to commit their presence on both the days and undertake some group work between sessions. The age limit for this workshop is 18 years and above. The workshop will explore the possibility of further collaborative work towards the end.

‘The Artists’ Way’ is a series of experimental workshops hosted virtually by KNMA and led by practicing artists who have been using workshops, different pedagogic and collaborative methods to develop projects and ideas. The series is imagined as an exploratory platform, with part pedagogic intent, raise new questions and doubts with playfulness and sometimes involving a collective/collaborative production towards the end of the workshop. This program is part of KNMA Education Outreach, with the focus on artistic research as new pedagogies of the future. Each workshop is unique, different in format, scope and methodology, wherein artists also share their related research with the participants.
‘The Artists’ Way’ program is outlined by Akansha Rastogi, with Madhurima Chaudhuri, Neha Tickoo, Rajshree Poonam Gupta and Priya Chandra.
