This Weekend in Karachi: The Final Sprint
This weekend in Karachi is perhaps your last chance at pretending like it’s winter. Blink and you’ll miss it. How about you just let us walk you through it? There are two major festivals for book lovers lined up, two workshops for those trying to evolve, and one very exciting play. Five experiences that you cannot miss:
Sindh Literature Festival
The Third Sindh Literature Festival will be a 3-day event. Come celebrate the rich culture of Sindh, rooted in rich literary tradition and magical story-telling. Text content, visual installments, panel discussions, music, and performances. Explore Sindhi identity through a socio-economic, political and cultural lens. The complete lineup is available on their Facebook page.
P.S. The event is open to all
Qissa Khawani Bazar
A cultural extravaganza straight from the streets of Peshawar, Qissa Khawani Bazar is dedicated to the celebration of Peshawar’s history, folk literature, cuisine, and culture. There will be renditions of oral history, traditional music and myriad art forms that the language lends itself to.
P.S. Tickets will be available at the gates
The Art of Questioning
The one day workshop is specifically geared for teachers and students, but others are also welcome to attend. Parents are actually encouraged. The purpose is to open the floor to a productive and insightful discussion on phrasing questions in a respectful manner and responding to tough questions appropriately. I’m all for self-growth, so I’d recommend that you guys check this out.
P.S. Register to attend
