Ummeed Child Development Center, Mumbai, invites you to ‘Weaving Our Voices’- the Second International Narrative Practices Conference in India’. The conference will be held in Mumbai, India on 30th Jan – 4th February, 2020.

India’s histories are storied with rich wisdom of weavers weaving textiles that tell stories of their times, their places, their people and the weavers’ themselves. Weaving, across India, is as diverse as our languages, our cultures, our food, our birds, our flowers. Yet at the heart of it, weaving is an intricate skilled art of documenting stories and re-telling them. If you ever observe a weaver in action, it would appear as a repetitive process. But as you observe closely, each time the thread moves, it takes a different turn, a different angle and a different fold, forming patterns that tell unique and distinct stories.

Weaving our voices, the second international narrative practices conference is where voices from diverse contexts across India and the world will weave their stories of work using the narrative ideas and practices into a collective story. It will include pre and post conference workshops, oral and poster presentations and mini workshops.

We welcome you all to join us and add voice, to weave and to witness the creating of this collective story with voices from across the world.
