Confronting the reality of Western global dominance
In the second of our unplugged cross-cultural discussions, 3rd Space continues the conversation with Mumbaikers, Abhishek Thakore of the Blue Ribbon Movement, and actress Suruchi Aulakh. We discuss the question – is the future black and brown? And explore in real time the raw reality of what it takes to confront Western global dominance.
Together, we are tracing the pathway to a new cosmopolitanism, which includes keeping the rich diversity of cultural identities.
In this session, we examine:
Is the future black and brown?
The shadow of Britain’s colonial history
Is genuine humility the first step for the West toward decolonising the global space?
The geographical factor of civilisations based on ‘scarcity’ versus those based on ‘abundance’. What is the significance of this in shaping cultural difference?
