Ravi Ramaswamy
has been invited to speak at an event called Merakee .Merakee is a group started by students and others of Mount Carmel College and CMS Jain . 

Merakee is a platform that serves to showcase people's talents, experiences, knowledge and wisdom. 
In a world where not everyone has access to a stage, Merakee believes that as many people as possible ought to be given a chance to express themselves and teach one another.

Merakee hopes to create a space for networking where interesting and interested people can come together and make art, knowledge and information available to more people.

Date 17th Feb 2018, Saturday,
Venue: Kareem Towers, Cunningham road, Bangalore
Time: 4.30 pm 

Ravi started by introducing Paulo Friere's ideas and work on education which inspired Theatre of the Oppressed. Following this, I engaged the group in Image Theatre. The students were very curious to know about Theatre of the Oppressed and were readily coming up and creating stories through images. Here are a few pictures from the event
