Over The Rainbow At AF Bombay
“Some people feel the rain. Others just get wet’’ said Bob Marley. Alliance Française de Bombay certainly wants you to relate to the former. To tune in to the special vibe of the monsoon, AF Bombay will be organising a series of events from July 16, 2016 to August 27, 2016 collectively called The Monsoon Project.
This project is all about fun and creativity put to productive use. Numerous events will take place at different venues all around the city. Be it photography or cooking workshops, theatre, dance or cinema, the list is exhaustive.
The month of July will see the participants being introduced to the nitty-gritties of taking photos in Introduction to photography – Part 1 by Indranil Mukherjee (July 16 at the AF Auditorium), a Street Art workshop by Harshvardhan Kadam (July 16 at Anti Social in Khar West), the nuances of the Interaction between French and Indian cinema by Jeff Goldberg (July 29 at the AF Auditorium) and a theatre improvisation workshop with Improv Comedy Mumbai (July 30 at AF Auditorium).
There is a whole spate of activities planned for August as well! The workshops will kick off with a Recycle design workshop with Dharavi Diary (Aug 6 at AF Auditorium), Introduction to Photography – Part 2 by Indranil Mukherjee (Aug 6 at Phoenix Mills), a Poetry Workshop with The Poetry Club Mumbai (Aug 13 at AF Auditorium), Crepes Suzette Workshop with Sofitel Mumbai BKC (Aug 20 at Sofitel, Mumbai BKC), Lindy Hop dance with Chaintanya (Aug 27 in the Conference Room, St. Andrews College).
The Monsoon Project won’t fail to add colour to this season and help you have a happy rainy day!
