Media and Performance

Online Presence

The Speaking Cloth project will be represented through a website and social media as an evolving programme inviting people to view piece as it develops and join the journey at the events in Melbourne and potentially 3 cities in India. It is imagined that the website and social media presence will generate a community of viewers who will be invited to engage with the final piece at the Exhibitions in India and Australia.

Exhibition Programme

The project imagines one gallery showing in New Delhi and Melbourne each initially. After this the piece will be retained in Melbourne and shared for display with Galleries as a travelling exhibition.The project envisages a travelling exhibition that stops at key places to conduct a conversation (as a workshop or symposium even). This event is a reading of the stories from the cloths – a conversation that aims to look at maternal health from the perspective of the women.

Encounters

Each display is imagined as a provocation to initiate a conversation between women’s health activists, policy people and civil society on the evolving nature of interventions in the space of maternal health. Once the pieces are produced – the next activity is the performance. The project envisages a travelling exhibition that stops at key places to conduct a conversation (as a workshop or symposium even). This event is a reading of the stories from the cloths – a conversation that aims to look at maternal health from the perspective of the women. Finally arriving at an understanding about the complexity of the maternal health ecosystem.

Re Experience in The Media and Performance component of the project: This will be a variation on how my previous project The BookWallah Projet was run – using an online ‘broadsheet’, facebook and twitter. (See http://www.thebookwallah.com/)
