Around 200 people attended the tribute organized by New Acropolis Mumbai in commemoration of World Philosophy Day, in collaboration with the National Gallery of Modern Art (Ministry of Culture, Govt. of India). Philosopher & photographer Pierre Poulain, classical dancer Miti Desai, Founder of the Kabir Project Shabnam Virmani and the National Director of New Acropolis (India North) Yaron Barzilay, came together to explore the inherent connection between Philosophy and Art, in a panel discussion entitled: ‘Empowering Real Change through Philosophy and Art’.
