Join us for the first event in our Stories at MAP series, where we celebrate International Women’s Day with a session around the book The Women I Could Be by Sangita Jogi. Equally rich in narration and illustration, this book is about the many wonderful women that inhabit Jogi’s imaginations: those that push the boundaries and inspire her. 

Sangita Jogi is an artist and oral storyteller from Rajasthan. Hailing from a very patriarchal set-up, Jogi was married young and has had many limits and restrictions imposed upon her. Through her art, however, she dreams up endless alternate possibilities and allows the reader to peep into her fantasies, hopes and dreams.

In this session, participants will listen to excerpts from the book, look closely at Jogi’s art and engage in an art-making activity inspired by the illustrations and stories of The Women I Could Be

Stories at MAP is a programme developed by the MAP Education team as a means of connecting art, storytelling and our lived realities. This session will be facilitated by members of the MAP Education team.
