Natural Dye Symposium Session #1: Indigo Shade Map
Time & Location
About the Event
Indigo Shade Map is an educational online map and a space for cultural exchanges showing a variety of indigo plants and connecting indigo farmers, dyers, and hobbyists from various cultures in one place. Indigo is a metaphor for the cultural perspective and plays a pivotal role because it connects everyone on the map. In this session, indigo growers from three different locations will join and share their experiences with the environment, cultures, and languages.
Four indigo dyers & growers from the four different regions will share their experiences and knowledges about the indigo farming and cultivation. This is a live Q & A session via zoom and you can find the detailed information about this event through MICA's website here.
