6pm – 8:30pm, Gallery 3: Pin Badge Making workshop
Pen Fight Distro will be delivering a pin badge making workshop. Around since the late 1800s, badges went on to become an essential part of punk, DIY culture, and grassroots campaigning, thanks to being cheap to buy and accessible to produce. Draw, collage, type, cut out photographs or found images, and create a unique miniature piece of wearable art that you can take home with you.
7:00pm – 8:00pm, Study Centre: Creative Conversations
Join Hemali Bhuta and Shreyas Karle of CONA and Himanshu Shetty for a creative discussion about their artistic approach as well as input from local artists and creatives.
The evening will be sound tracked with a play list of music curated by Himanshu, Hemali and Shreyas.
