Video | Celebrating local knowledge in the face of ecological destruction

The Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Manav Sangrahalaya is spearheading an interactive Museum Movement in India, to celebrate the ‘simultaneous validity’ of various valuable cultural patterns evolved over thousands of years. The Organization is working for national integration, and promotes research and training and inter-institutional networking for Salvage and revitalization of vanishing but valuable cultural traditions and highlights the unity and diversity; and organizes exhibitions to present an integrated story of biological evolutions and variations. The IGRMS, through its exhibitions and salvage activities, demonstrates the aesthetic qualities of India’s traditional life styles; local knowledge and mores cherished for thousands of years, and caution the people against unprecedented destruction of ecology, environment, local values, customs etc. There is a paradigm shift in museum education process and IGRMS envisages a definite role for itself in this process.
