- Vikalp Sangam at Timbaktu, 17-19 October 2014: A Report
This was the first Sangam, hosted by Timbaktu Collective at Timbaktu, a picturesque location in Andhra Pradesh in the lap of wonderfully regenerated nature and the heart of rich culture. Timbaktu, the name, itself had a very fascinating story behind it which added to the whole unconventional spirit of the Sangam. The location as well as the space aesthetically merged with the theme and idea of the Sangam.
The three days of the Sangam, 17th to 19th of October, were a unique experience filled with inspiring stories, some brain-storming and discussions, singing, dancing and several mouth-watering meals made from locally produced organic crops.
