Sandbox Collective will present the third edition of ‘Gender Bender’ on September 9 and 10 at Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan.

It is a joint project between Sandbox Collective and the Goethe - Institut and is co curated along with ‘The Ladies Finger’. The project invites artists and individuals working in the field of arts to send entries for projects that take a fresh, innovative and new look at notions of gender or approach questions or issues of gender with ingenuity and imagination.

Projects could include fiction or non-fiction writing, poetry, film, theatre, music, visual arts, photography, installations, drawings, dance, or a mix of media and artistic forms.

From matters most intimate that should be spoken about more often, to a collective game that people join in to play, this year’s edition of ‘Gender Bender’ promises to be a fulfilling experience.

This year, the panel comprises of Sadanand Menon, Sameera Iyengar, A Mangai and Jasmeen Patheja. Sadanand Menon is an arts editor, cultural journalism teacher and photographer.

Co-founder and director of ‘Junoon’, Sameera Iyengar studied BSc Mathematics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and has a PhD in Theatre from the University of Chicago.

A Mangai is a theatre director and professor of English Literature at Stella Mary’s College, Chennai.

Jasmeen Patheja graduated from Srishti School of Art Design and Technology, where she started the ‘Blank Noise’ as a student project, which has now gone to other cities as well.

Ibtisam, Madhushree Basu, Sukriti Sureka, Arunima Bose, Aarthi Murali, Shilpa Mudbi Kothakota, Himani Pant, Elisabeth Pfahl, Sreecheta Das and ‘Fields Of View’ are some of the grantees for Gender Bender
