Based on the framework of the exhibition ‘Critical Zones’ the workshop will be conducted by two artists- Ketaki Phatak and Abhijit Patil, who will elaborate on the agricultural practices, which has allowed us to have a hold over resources in the critical zone of this planet, which was unimaginable to the species before. The workshop will focus on Permaculture, an approach to land management and settlement design that adopts arrangements observed in flourishing natural ecosystems and its ethics and principles.

Ketaki Phatak works as a Permaculture consultant and lives in a small village in the district of Ratnagiri where she works with a women’s collective called ‘Ub’ amongst other things and focuses on practicing slowness.

Abhijit Patil is a photographer from Pune who moonlights as a Permaculturist working in the Western Ghats trying to learn, preserve and document the wild.
