Boomerang | An Eco Fest – 2017

Boomerang Festival | What Goes Around, Comes Around

Boomerang is a festival demanding reflection and thinking on sustainable living through various domains and arts. The objective is to better understand the need for sustainable development, while exploring the roots of the current global scenario comparing it with the traditional practices and eventually finding a way forward locally. 

Taking forward the stand of India-France partnership on Climate Change, this festival is a collaborative feat of many institutions, people, organisations, and companies who came together with Alliance Française d’Ahmedabad to present you quite a busy next few months. A three month long festival will have a theme for every month. 
September | Food and Agriculture
October | Urbanism and Sustainable Living
November | Education and Arts.

Through different fields and going back and forth in history and future, this is an honest attempt to find the way forward in our neighbourhood for a sustainable environment.

Upcoming events this month under this festival

Art/Design
Conference by India Street
Tracing back the roots of defunct textile industry of Turkey Red from Scotland to Indian local hand-crafted textiles, the talk presents how quickly design with no cultural significance can lead to an unsustainable cycle. In hopes to revive the low-fi crafts, 7 designers from India and Scotland join hands to create more ethical, ecological products using block prints in India, some natural dyes and Indian tailors. The conference is a part of Boomerang Festival.
Venue: French Gallery
Date: 10th November, 2017
