A GARDEN OF REFLECTION

A Garden of Reflection is a space to gather, to come together to read, listen and share. Every week we invite a guest to bring in material as a provocation to start a conversation through personal stories and sharing. Over the weeks we will speak around themes of love, friendships, gender, caste, religion through the lens of identity and citizenship. The sessions are free, participatory and open to all. We have very limited seats on a first come, first serve basis.
