Presented by The Empathy Club and The Movement (Mauritius)
The human stories behind various crafts will be told by craftspeople to remind us what it takes to create products locally. Regularly tapping into their bodies’ wisdom, they will explore the importance of staying connected to their bodies and staying connected to the materials with which they work. They will tell their story, giving us the opportunity to step outside of our reality and discover their perspectives. Some of their products will be showcased.  This event will be hosted from Sofap Eco Hub and streamed online.
