Guwahati Workshop: Mapping Who We Are
Before the Guwahati Workshop began, the first thing that needed to be done was the addition of colour and flowers to the drab conference room of the Cotton University campus.
The workshop was designed as a convivial space of interaction and reflection for all participants.
Instead of a conventional opening session with formal introductions, each participant was asked to attach a photo to an index card and write about herself as if she was talking to a friend. The index cards were then mounted on a map showing the North eastern states of India and the Indian Ocean region to the south. In this way, we warmed up to each other and got comfortable with the space of the workshop.
