Event Details:


Thodur Madabusi Krishna is a vocalist in the Carnatic form of classical music, a public intellectual who challenges traditional hegemonic paradigms, and a social activist who interrogates the intersection of caste, class, and gender within society while exploring the contours of democracy, culture, and learning. In 2016, Krishna received the prestigious Ramon Magsaysay Award in recognition of “his forceful commitment as artist and advocate to art’s power to heal India’s deep social divisions”. In 2017, he received the Indira Gandhi Award for National Integration for his services in promoting and preserving national integration in the country. TM Krishna has famously stated that “creating art is an act of activism”.
