‘INTERLUDE’ or the in-between is an experimental space at Srishti Institute of Art, Design & Technology, for pause, or self-reflection. It is a platform for critiquing and busting memes of today or of the times to come. The vision is to create a space that lies in the intersection between academic learning and a ‘design-free’ zone, where postgraduate students from Srishti and other institutions come together and critically engage in the act of ‘meme-busting’.
In its second edition this year, we have three Open Studios, each exploring a particular theme:
- Culture of Resilience: Resilience of Culture
- Contesting Heritage
- Sustain by Design
The students have a choice to enroll in any one of the studio and choose a particular provocation that the studio offers. The students then, over a period of four weeks work in interdisciplinary teams to actively construct their response to the chosen provocation. The construction will be shaped by a mentoring space where experts from diverse disciplines will share their insights, experiences and positions in any form, such as talks, walks, discussions, open debates, workshops, hackathons, and other formats of their choice. The student teams are encouraged to engage in these wide-ranging activities to facilitate their response-building process and take informed positions of their own. Each open studio culminates into co-located conference on the 14, 15, and 16 December. Student work will drive a platform for public exchange, debate, and discourse around the respective themes.
