With a series of pre-event course material, the PDP intends to locate itself on the site of indigenous culture and way of life. It would be a unique opportunity for the students and professionals working in various environmental and urban domains encountering the cultural logic of indigenous communities in the hinterlands of central India. As Madhya Pradesh is one of the wealthiest states in India in terms of tribal heritage, the programme would benefit from the locational access to the site. The five-day programme would explore the Community-Craft-Culture framework to map out the practices at the ground and understand climate change and resilience principles. Some of these practices will be further interpreted for urban systems. They would add to the existing knowledge bank on resilience.
