DraftCraft International is a global policy research and analysis think tank. DraftCraft International is pleased to announce its quarterly programme in Goa, India against the backdrop of the International Film Festival of India (IFFI Goa 2019). During the programme, DraftCraft International, in association with DraftCraft Institutes, will conduct and host Residential Workshops and Film Screenings.

Three-Day Weekday Residential Workshops In Goa
Distinct from the run-of-the-mill and mundane classroom exercises, the Three-Day Weekday Residential Workshops will be held at exotic outdoor venues, including those of DraftCraft International's 'live projects' in Goa.

About The Workshop
India is not just a country. It is a multi-hued palette of religions, faiths, tribes, cults, customs and more. For centuries, before India was even called by that name, the people of this land embraced travellers, refugees and migrating communities. In present-day scenario, the country has faced several allegations of being 'non-inclusive' and 'intolerant' by entities within and beyond borders, especially in the polarised political environment. The workshop will explore the timeline of 'Secular India' and how perception is diametrically different from reality.

Three-day workshop | 20 Nov 2019 (Wednesday) - 22 Nov 2019 (Friday)
