In 2021 and 2022 we celebrated Holi in Manhattan by throwing colors in the sky with kites. It was a family event well participated by all communities.
We celebrated Indian Independence day in Central Park by learning to play cricket and fly kites. It was a family event well participated by both adults and kids.
We explored the intersection of words, sound, movement, and visual art through this online panel discussion with poets, visual artist and performers from India and the US.
Indian fashion creates a great space for learning. We organized a panel-discussion and a mini fashion parade in Times Square showcasing the Madisar which is an ancient way of wearing the saree.
