TALK WITH ARTIST AQUI THAMI: THE MAKING OF A FEMINIST LIBRARY

About this event

For this online event Aqui Thami will talk about her work with the Sister Library and how she uses social exchange and community interaction for healing. There will be a short time for Q+A at the end of her talk.

Aqui Thami is a Mumbai-based multidisciplinary artist, activist and academic. She is the founder of the Sister Library which is India’s only feminist library.

We would be pleased if you could make a donation to support the women labourers in the tea plantations in Darjeeling. They are the lowest paid workers in the sector, and due to Covid lockdown and work restrictions many of the women are directly affected and pushed further into poverty. We suggest a donation of £6, but please give what you can (more or less money, as you can afford): https://milaap.org/fundraisers/support-women-of-tea-plantations
