Greetings from Prayasam!
On International Women’s Day 2022, 8th March, Prayasam is hosting an awareness event where residents of 10 Salt Lake blocks will be participating in different creative and digital media, to raise awareness of women issues, acknowledge their struggles and achievements.
The world at large doesn’t hold a welcoming attitude towards women. And years after years women have been continuously trying to create a congenial environment for themselves. A woman’s life is full of struggles, struggles that lead to confidence, confidence to lead to pride, and pride makes them strong and more responsible. Their self empowerment has increased their responsibilities manifold. They have to balance work and home. Women’s importance has amplified, their responsibilities have multiplied and equally their tension, pressure and stress have also increased. Let’s introspect our mammoth insensitive behavior towards our mother, daughter, sister, wife, and girlfriend. This International Women’s Day, Prayasam takes a humble step to layer the ongoing mental, emotional and psychological wound experienced for women folk with live canvas, poetry, audio drama, films, theater, discussion and dance at our Kalanjali Art Space.
