Oral History Interview with Pamila Matharu (2014)

Subject

Grassroots movement, identity, politics, Desh Pardesh, South Asian, arts festival, oral history, Harris

Description

Matharu discusses the critical progressive nature of the Desh Pardesh festival, and how this was targeted specifically for a population of people of colour. Matharu also touches briefly on the intergenerational nature of the festival, and how this constant contact between groups allowed a flourishing of thought and artistry. Matharu concludes by outlining that Desh can be replicated in the modern day and perhaps may be easier to accomplish with the rise of the internet. She also equates the demise of Desh to the precariousness of the arts industry in general and the rise of the Harris government.
