Children's Workshop: Hanuman's Ramayana
|Children's Workshop: Hanuman's RamayanaSATURDAY, APRIL 15, 2017, 2 – 4PM EDT|
As Hanuman’s Ramayana unfolds, so does the idea that there is no one version of the well-loved story, but many—a fundamental comment on the nature of all myths. A story belongs to no one person. It can have as many forms as there are tellers, it can grow and change, and each time it makes us see it afresh. Gauri Misra-Deshpande will share the monkey-god’s version of the Indian story in front of the wooden Hanuman figure from Nigeria in the African Gallery. Children will then create their own stories on fresh, green banana leaves while munching on sweet plantain chips. Ages 6–8.
Fees for Children's Workshops: $15 for Carlos Museum members; $20 for non-members.
