Curated by Annapurna Garimella
The Barefoot School of Craft is a unique architectural project that was initiated in the previous edition of the festival. The first stage was accomplished by creating a vision, through the selection of fifteen models in an architectural competition, which were displayed at Serendipity Arts Festival, 2017. This year, a residency in Goa with the architects from the 9th to 21st May 2018 allowed us to turn the vision into a design for a pavilion that will function as a talking, working, and collaborative space, bringing together architects, craftspeople, the curator, students of the BSC and visitors. We seek to inaugurate the pavilion prior to the festival as a space for the local community to make and buy products historic and new Goa crafts. The programme will start from 6 December 2018 and end on 10 February 2019, with workshops, pedagogical talks, and discussions taking place every week.
