Zoom Meeting

Why do memes get shared? What does it mean to express your feelings, attitudes, and even politics through memes? How can we better understand different aspects of culture, not just as viewers, but also as contributors and creators? 

From ‘grumpy cat’ to ‘Indiranagar ka gunda’, memes have graduated from being just jokes to finding a prominent place in our popular culture and society, expressing everything from social and political commentary to the perfect comeback, and all that lies in-between. Join Medhavi Gandhi for a 1 hour session where we delve into meme-culture, satire, critical thinking and meme-making with Indian art! 

This workshop is specially curated for 18-25 year olds.
Limited Seats. Register now to book your spot!
