Do you feel having these conversations and Spaces for Dialogue are vitally important?

Through this campaign we are appealing for support to fund our December Spaces for Dialogue segment of #TakeTheCityKolkata: Pickle Factory Season 2, which addresses the question How do meet un/familiar bodies from un/familiar worlds? A range of artists present performances, talks, interactions, discussions and workshops in a variety of educational spaces, giving us a reflection of the world we inhabit and also introducing us to potentially unfamiliar worlds that may help us reflect on our own.

Through Spaces for Dialogue we aim to highlight how the arts can and do comment on, respond to – and ultimately inspire new thinking around – the values with which we choose to live our lives.

#TakeTheCityKolkta : Pickle Factory Season 3 marks our return to our signature programming after three pandemic interrupted years. Your support will allow us to re-enter spaces and bring people together for arts and community experiences.
