INTOXICATION WITH COLORS – GENDER INVERSION IN LAND OF KRISHNA WORSHIP

Jafa Journey to VRINDAVAN & NANDGAON 

Lathmar Holi Nandgaon

Sunday 25th Feb, 2018

One day Academic Driving Tour

Brief:

Experiential tourism mostly gets limited to one event, hence the commercialized experience of the incredible Lath Mar Holi in Barsana is presented without its context, & myth- sociological symbolism

Chaitanya Sansthan

Our Academic tour to Braj – The playground of Lord Krishna aspires to recreate layers of the EcoSystem of rituals, celebration and real-time challenging issues that surround this heritage landscape.

In collaboration with Chaitanya Prem Sansthan, Friends of Vrindavan and Temple of Radha Raman
