Unbox Festival 2013

UnBox Festival organized in part by our Reach partner in India – Quicksand. It is an annual celebration of interdisciplinary thought & work through a series of seminars, performances, exhibitions and talks. Held over 4 days from 07-10 February, 2013, this is the third edition of the festival. Vibrant, experiential and action-packed the event will be held on multiple stages, work rooms, bespoke lab spaces and open resource networks that will house the nearly 100 different pieces of programming.

UnBox invites participants from all walks of life— practitioners, students, educators and institutions, who are redefining professional, social and cultural engagement in their contexts. STBY was a part of Unbox last year and highly recommends it. So do go along, if you can – its really a fantastic event. You can find out more and register here – and dont forget to let us know if you do make it!
