Diwali- The festival of lights
It is symbolic of the victory of good over evil linked to the ancient tales of Hindu literature. People today draw the idea from there and celebrate this joyous occasion with family and friends, distributing sweets, decorating home and more importantly with lights, in the form of Diyas, the traditional lamps. Come join us and we will tell you about all the modern interpretations of this ancient concept.
The event will be held in ISOW on 11th November from 6-9pm.
First we will tell you all about Diwali as you enjoy Indian snacks, then you will experience the rich Indian culture in the form of cultural performances. You light up diyas and play some traditional games with us after which you can dance your heart out to Indian music.
Entry is free!
Food charge- 4 for non members, 3 for members.

Miss that childlike feeling of touching everything and getting your hands dirty? This workshop will take you back to those days when painting had nothing to do with technique but whimsical feelings of enjoyment and glee. We will each paint a canvas with our naked fingers, feel the cool paint on your tips and the rugged canvas beneath. You can paint whatever comes to your mind or heart as long as you are smiling through it. No artistic skills necessary just some nude fingertips and your enthusiasm! (Warning: Save your favourite clothes, do not wear them to this workshop!)

Writer's workout: Writing a good story takes a lot of things - great, relatable characters, a nice plot and most of all: training. Exercises for writing different perspectives, locations, tips for overcoming writer's block, and building engaging characters await you in this workshop. Instructions will be in English, but you can write in whatever language you want. And do not worry: there will be no reading aloud of the created texts.
