Vikram Nayak discusses his commitment to producing art that provokes insights into the inequalities experienced by people in India who are born with many disadvantages and few resources. We learn what set him on this road, and discover his involvement in Ekta Parishad (translated One Forum), a national movement that develops youth leaders within landless and tribal communities to campaign systematically and nonviolently for their land- and other rights.
The discussion is followed by a live Zoom workshop when Vikram will demonstrate his approach to making cartoons and viewers can ask him questions through chat.

About Madras Café Unlocked
As a result of COVID-19, WOMAD festival 2020 has been cancelled which has a huge impact on Madras Café and AVI. This is normally a key fundraising event and an opportunity to raise awareness about AVI’s solidarity with rural communities across India. Our re-imagined event, Madras Café Unlocked brings you a summer of online content in support of Action Village India and partners. We launch our five ‘stages’: Madras Café Family, Madras Boombox, Food for Thought, Partnerships & Solidarity and our Exhibition: Food for Justice and Peace on the 24th, 25th & 26th of July and events will run throughout the summer up to 26th September, when we conclude with an International meal in support of Jai Jagat 2020.
