Media Making Workshop
Artist talk by Sindhu Thirumalaisamy

This workshop is open to people of all ages and backgrounds but an RSVP is required. Refreshments will be provided. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
The spirit of resistance is alive in India. The forces of facism are met with the love, care, humor, and strength of a newly forming people’s movement. For a month the whole nation has been in protest against Hindu supremacist laws that suppress the basic rights of several minority groups, particularly Muslims. Sounds and images have been a vital part of this resistance. WhatsApp memes, songs, music videos, kolams, and a range of posters have flooded our imagination, describing the nation that we want to live in. Join us for a workshop and talk with Flux resident Sindhu Thirumalaisamy where we will listen, view, read, and contribute to the resistance with sounds and images.
Prior to the talk, the Flux Factory gallery will turn into a workshop for media making. Do you want to make a poster? A meme? Want to record a video? A song? Want to learn how to draw a kolam? Want to chat with about what is happening in India and beyond? We will gather materials, equipment, and people to help make all of this happen!
