About the event

To mark International Women’s Day, Mother’s day and Women's History Month, artist and maker Nandita Shankardass will facilitate a gathering of discovery, reflection and sharing through connecting to nature, our senses, movement, culture and memory.

Please feel encouraged and welcome to bring along any special women in your life, be it a friend or a relative or even an object/photo or memory, in any form, which reminds you of a woman in your life or family. We will connect with them and each other during our time together in this intergenerational event.

This event is aimed at women and people identifying as women.

Each ticket admits 1. Spaces are limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

If you book and cannot attend, please let us know as soon as possible so we can make your tickets available.

About the facilitator:

Nandita Shankardass is a 2024 Seedbed Artist and this event is part of her research project in partnership with OmVed Gardens, supported with a Seedbed Award by 101 Outdoor Arts.

Nandita was born in London and is of South Asian Punjabi heritage. She is a performing artist, choreographer, facilitator and educator and the founder of Welcome Movement®, which offers opportunities such as performances, workshops and experiences, to generate wellbeing, stimulate creativity and empower a sense of freedom and self expression through movement and dance for individuals, organisations and communities. Nandita is continually driven by care and compassion in her creative processes and in the participatory experiences she facilitates.

As part of her research project, Nandita is exploring ancestry, agriculture, ecological activism and the inherent wisdom of women as guardians of the earth. Her aim is to create awareness, through movement, on our dependency on water and soil, food production and our relationship to the land and to one another. By researching movements in India’s history: from the cotton empire, Gandhi and the spinning wheel, the Chipko movement to the violence of the green revolution, her project seeks to generate reflection around our contribution to the ecosystem and inspire a message of hope that we can renew, regenerate and deepen our relationship to the land to evoke freedom, resilience and community through dance, music and storytelling. She is continually inspired by Vandhana Shiva’s work and the Saving Seed movement.
