An interactive, multimedia evening accompanied by live music, charts the life and times of Mahatma Gandhi, through a series of short films, memorabilia and shared experiences.
Presented by Birad Rajaram Yajnik, a noted Gandhi author, speaker and curator, the evening is an exploration of the values of the Mahatma, commentary on his impact on some of the most powerful leaders and influencers, and how Gandhi’s teachings and presence are still relevant today to each of us as individuals, in our communities, and as a society.
The live music performed by some of the finest artists will include Gandhi’s favourite bhajans and classical pieces. A photographic installation of some rare images of Gandhi will also be on display.
Birad Rajaram Yajnik has spoken on Gandhi at the United Nations, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Nehru Centre in London, and the Tolstoy farm in Johannesburg. He has developed interactive installations in three continents – the King Gandhi Wall at Howard University, Washington DC, the Mandela Gandhi Digital Exhibition at Constitution Hill and the Mandela Gandhi Wall at the Nelson Mandela Foundation, Johannesburg.
