1 sari. 108 people.
We invite you to the launch of #Unstitched: an international, collaborative, performance art project and the co-launchof Unstitched Thoughts – a series of conversations on the idea of Sari during the project’s two-year journey around the world.
For the opening keynote, join writer, philosopher and theorist, Narendra Pachkhédé for a lively discussion of the sari as an object of inquiry. How can we examine the sari as a cultural artifact? How can we value the act of wearing a sari as an event? How can we engage with the cultural significance of the sari, the politics of sari-wearing, and explore its story as that of a great survival.

7:30pm Opening Keynote: Saree as an object of inquiry by Narendra Pachkhédé, Commonwealth Fellow
