As part of our endeavour to create awareness, a sense of community, provoke thought, celebrate the cultural diversity of India, we organised Mandav Utsav – an ethnic mela along with a musical play.
Our events find context through our travel destinations and in this case, our destination was Mandu or Mandav.
The Mela had food from Malwa (dal bati churma, bhuttey ka kees, etc), shopping from Malwa (Maheshwari sarees, linen, namkeen), handmade items by us (compost, painted notebooks, etc) and some games.
It ended with a musical play that took the audience through the history of Mandu. Written, directed, sung, danced and enacted by fellow architects/friends for the sheer joy of sharing and creative expression.
The idea was to create a community event.
