Bhoomi Habba

Dear Friends, Visthar invites you to the Bhoomi Habba, a festival celebrating Justice and Peace on May 5 in Bangalore. This annual festival held at the green, environmentally friendly Visthar campus includes an International Food Festival, a Documentary Film Festival, Poster Exhibitions, Dolls Exhibition, Art Workshops for Children, Music, Dance and Theatre. The Food Festival will showcase traditional foods from 10 countries – Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Indonesia, India, Burma, Bangladesh, Philippines and Africa. Food is not just about sustenance and taste; it is also associated with meaning and culture. By bringing together traditional foods from different societies, we are also engaging with different cultures of food. The focus this year is on traditional foods that are resilient to Climate Change. The Documentary Film Festival screens documentaries from around the country on urgent, contemporary issues. This year, we will look at Nuclear energy, Dow Chemicals’ legacy in Bhopal and the effects of Agent Orange.  The Poster Exhibition and Installations will highlight peoples’ struggle around India against the Violence of Development. This year, we have posters and cartoons from different struggles: anti-nuclear struggles, the Bhopal campaign, and the struggles of the victims of Agent Orange. “Dolls Speak”, an Exhibition of Dolls by the celebrated Belgian doll-maker Francoise Bosteels.  Her dolls have travelled around the world from India to Latin America inspiring people to share their stories. They are about people forgotten in our memory. Though silent, the dolls eloquently give them a voice. Created over a period of 12 years, the dolls have moved people to write poems about the oppression and hopes in daily life. The objective of the festival is to increase peoples’ awareness of justice and peace issues. A vibrant participatory democracy calls for such informed citizens. As in the previous years, there will be stalls selling traditional handicrafts and traditional varieties of rice. To book stalls contact Shirley Sundar at [email protected] The Bhoomi Habba is held between 10:00am – 6:00pm on May 5, 2012 at the Visthar campus at Dodda Gubbi (near Kothanur, off Hennur Main Road,) Bangalore. For more details, please contact Sham at: 9845242453 or write to [email protected]. Come with family, friends and colleagues. Warm regards, David Selvaraj (Coordinator, Bhoomi Habba)
