WE ARE OCEAN Mumbai will start in November 2020 with an online room at Critical Conditions – The Mind of Nature, which is planned as an online festival this year and will present several conversation rooms.

“Conversations as a site for learning and knowledge exchange to spark individual and collective actions for ecology”.

Anne-Marie Melster, the curator of WE ARE OCEAN, will be in conversation with the participants of her virtual room to speak about ocean-related topics challenging Mumbai and its inhabitants.

Essential conversations flow with fewer participants and there are greater exchange values and agencies to share freely for those who seek, inquire and have the potential to act. Which is why the festival planned to have only 5 to get into a conversation with the expert, actor or speaker to maximise the impact of the interaction in this program.

1. The conversation starts with a special room where a selected number of inquirers will speak with Anne-Marie Melster about the topic. This conversation can be joined by viewers. (40 minutes)
