International Women’s Day 2017

Program by :

Auroville women celebrate International Women’s Day by hosting traditional music, dance and ‘kolam’ (chalk art) competitions at Swachu Building at Bharat Nivas on 18 March 2017.

The United Nations theme for International Women’s Day 2017, focuses on “Women in the Changing World of Work: Planet 50-50 by 2030”. While the women in cities were occupied in either organizing or participating in various conferences and meetings, Women at Auroville have celebrated the day by promoting the local culture in three forms viz., music, dance, art by spreading the theme of gender equality and women civic participation in the society.

Grace, Usha and Mathi from Auroville have taken a lead role in organizing various cultural activities which includes music and dance competitions and also performances.

Bregette (from Hollande) has been at Auroville and serving at Matrimandir for five years now and in talking to the Auroville Radio she expressed her excitement of being part of this community in rendering various services mainly to the ‘art and culture’.

Mayawati, from La Farm has been the instructor for the ‘kolam’ art competition. Many young girls, students and women participated and filled the floor of the building with amusing and colorful art.
