The Making of the 5 Year Plan Project

Jan 10

1 PM
Lecture
Neartown
1324 W Clay St, Houston, TX

Co-sponsored by TPM Printers Guild.

In his lecture “The Making of the 5 Year Plan Project: Artists Collaborating with Gandhi Ashrams in India” creator Aaron Sinift will discuss his journey from the New York art world to India in search of Gandhi ashram collectives, and how he instigated a DIY international artist collaboration to serve Doctors Without Borders.

Sinift will also introduce OTHER IMAGININGS, the current book project underway with three ashrams in Northern India. These projects use Fluxus strategies of collaborative play to create art editions that are consistent with Gandhian ideals of self-sufficiency (swadeshi) and selfless service (seva) in honor of Gandhi, creating thousands of days employment to poor villagers and building cooperative relationships of mutual trust and love.
