We live in an increasingly fragmented world, where information comes from every direction and the lines between fact and disinformation can easily blur. To help people understand what is useful and factual, we believe it is essential to present the different threads of an idea or thought, allowing people to weave their own narratives. This is the spirit behind Themes@Koota – to broaden understanding through sharing on diverse topics. Community participation is the driving force to take this idea forward.
Each theme we identify is meant to run for a month, with exhibitions, talks, films, workshops, and other activities designed to engage with different aspects related to that theme. Content is curated for various age and interest groups, with opportunities for discourse across groups. Experts from the community help curate the program with an emphasis on integrating ideas across disciplines.
