A unique medium of storytelling, prevalent across the length and breadth of India, is that of the scroll. From the eastern corners to the deep south of the country, the scroll has been a constant companion of itinerant bards who travel from village to village, unrolling them in front of eager audiences and narrating the stories they hold. In this workshop, participants get introduced to these unique storytelling traditions through select objects from the MAP collection and take part in a group exercise of creative storytelling through making their own scrolls.
This workshop will require participants to carry with them:
- Sketch pens
- A4 paper
*Please note participants may be required to purchase certain materials for the workshop at the venue.
In collaboration with the Museum Of Art & Photography (Bengaluru).
