In this talk, Dr. Aparna Katre will discuss how cultural entrepreneurship is being used for the economic development of rural communities in India. Specifically, she will discuss the case study of a design-led process that has helped establish several women's cooperatives leveraging the regional crafts, enabling women to be responsible for their economic activities, both independently and competitively. The case is from the state of Bihar in India.

The next talk in the series is scheduled for Thursday, October 11 at the same time and location.
