A really nice write-up…

A really nice write-up of the festival at The Aerogram, with some great photos, including one of me standing barefoot on a chair.

"Beyond a focus on the works of individual artists and writers, the Kriti Festival fostered connections and dialogue between South Asian and diaspora artists. Robust discussions took place about the sociocultural taboos of writing about sex or airing dirty laundry and on a practical level, the paths to publication and transitioning into a career in the arts.

As we ran back and forth between the dizzying number of sessions and events, it was not unusual to see pockets of participants continuing these conversations over a cup of coffee. Just as its name suggests, the Kriti Festival is about creativity, but just as importantly, its about community."
