Update from the 50th team


Dear friends,

A little update from the 50th team:

The 50th Anniversary events for the month of November and December have begun and some are still going on. As earlier reported, the exhibition in Paris which shows architectural images and highlights the history and significance of the building of the Matrimandir in the context of global architecture continues until March 2017, at the Cité de l'Architecture et du Patrimoine.

The three celebratory events "Journey of Auroville, City for Human Unity" in Delhi have successfully taken place. In Indira Gandhi National Center for the Arts, a panel discussion took place on the 22nd, and until the 25th an exhibition was organised where Auroville product displays stalls, books, movies, presentations, activities and food were also shared with some 500 people over these days.

The event in UNESCO on the 24th was a panel discussion on the topic of unending education, which was equally attended.

The exhibition which was tailor-made for the events in Delhi now remains at the Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Delhi, until the 10th of December. After this, the exhibition returns to Auroville and will be exhibited here during the Birthday Week, and is envisaged to continue traveling around India during the 50th year.

We take this opportunity to thank the Aurovilians and units that have contributed or participated in the events!

The Delhi Expo team will separately invite the community for a movie screening and a sharing of photographs and stories about the events, to the wider community.


With love, The 50th team
