Celebrating the spirit of women's empowerment with IHC
For as long as films, art, music and industries have existed, women have worked in them. To celebrate the spirit of women's empowerment, India Habitat Centre (IHC) started its host of events to entertain the audience.
This month, IHC's dance repertoire features performances by indomitable Gurus such as Kathak Guru Shovana Narayan (and the 'Asavari Repertory') and Guru Kanaka Sudhakar (and her senior disciples).
On March 8, a talk on 'Sustainable Futures in Creative Industries' took place at 7 pm. At the same time, people witnessed the magic of 'Celebrating 100 years of Sahir Ludhianvi', a theatre event.
On March 10, 'Trirupam', a dance performance, will take place at 7:30 pm.
The themes of women reclaiming and discovering the power, within themselves, in curious ways find representation through IHC's fascinating collaboration with the Liszt Institute - Hungarian Cultural Centre Delhi.

So often, the world's most important documentaries are only available at film festivals and not to the public. To change this and bring a film festival for everyone, the VICE presents 'The Short List'. People can watch one brand-new documentary every Thursday.
