Armed with a bottle and a stick, a man descends: into the dark sulfurous depths of the city. Vanishing acts, made possible by the labour of workers who live and die below the surface. This man, we call the “scavenger”.

Join us on 11th Oct for a walk, along the Chambers of Ward 88. To lift the lid and see who lurks beneath. The walk is olfactory. The walk is a provocation. The walk is a call to introspect. This walk will be guided by Angarika Guha and Ekta Mittal as part of Horaata, a festival of creative practices around resistance organised by Maraa, a media and arts collective based in Bangalore. 

We’ll meet at Heritage Fresh, Jeevan Bhima Nagar. The walk is free. All are welcome. Please carry a bottle of water. Maximum number of registrations is twelve. To register, call: 9880159484/9880755875.

Warmly,
Angarika, Maraa
