In May 2013, author William Shaw ran workshops across four Indian cities to set up his project entitled 'Creating Change'. The project, supported by the British Council, aimed to get twelve fashion designers and fashion writers to contribute to the publication. Its aim? To create change in the country, in aspects as varied as wildlife conservation, local tribes, independent music and architecture, among others.
To inaugurate these discussions and to introduce the publication, the British Council plans to hold a talk on the evening of Thursday 12 August at their office in Lower Parel at 6 pm. The event will see design historian and curator Tom Wilson - who was also recently a curator-in-residence at the National Institute of Design — in conversation with designer-writer Ruchita Madhok, who is also one of the twelve involved in the publication's creation.
