"Dissenting, or holding an opinion in opposition to a prevailing idea, is an integral part of the Indian tradition in which we accept that there are many ways of looking and living in the world. Disagreement, debate, doubt, curiosity, philosophical contests, dialogue, all contribute to the fabric of civilisations, particularly the Indian, and it is no wonder we are termed “argumentative”!

Dissent has also produced powerful cultural expression – poetry, song, theatre, satire, stories … resisting tyranny, provoking us, challenging us, and making us re-discover our innate humanity.

Come share with us profound expressions of dissent on caste, gender, the relationship between the individual and the state, and language, from India, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, the USA, Palestine and Iraq.

We promise you an evening of great stimulation, emotion and reflection!" "
