What is DIGIKAT? #
Digikat is a convivial foray into the heritage of Ikat through the lens of creative coding.
For three weeks, a group of creative coders, designers, and textile experts, will convene and craft possible bridges between the two worlds.
The aim of the program is to sensitise a new generation of creative individuals to the meticulous work behind crafts like Ikat, and help those interested participating in the event better understand the crafts at hand be they textile or code related.
Inspired by the international Museomix format which invites anyone interested to hack their local museums over the course of a weekend.
You can check out last year’s Museomix India at the Sanskriti Kendra Terracotta Museum, New Delhi.
