Description

Verjee talks about her experience interacting with the Desh Pardesh festival in the late 1990s. She was not involved directly at an organizational level, but comes from a background in community organization because of her involvement in groups such as Invisible Colours, the Western Front and Vancouver Art Gallery. Verjee discusses her understanding of the collapse of the Desh Pardesh festival, and equates it to the excessive intervention of politics in the organizational hierarchy of the festival.
