Reimagining Tradition is a program designed around conversation, engagement and investigation. After the conclusion of the project, Open Source will present a panel discussion with the artists involved, moderated by Nina Mehta (PARCEO), to explore ritual, tradition, social practice, what has been learned and what questions have been raised.

Nina Mehta is a co-coordinator at PARCEO and has a background in anthropology. She received her BA from Barnard College and her MA from The New School for Social Research. Mehta has worked in many contexts with a wide range of community groups and organizations on collaborative research, education, cultural organizing and movement-building through neighborhood assemblies, public events and participatory conversations.

They are rooted in the principles of Participatory Action Research (PAR), a framework for engaging in research and organizing for social justice that is rooted in a community’s own knowledge, wisdom and experience. PAR recognizes that those most impacted by systemic injustice are in the best position to understand and analyze their needs and challenges and to organize for social change. PARCEO offers training, resources, seminars and one-on-one support for individuals, organizations and community-based groups that help them to better address the needs and concerns of their communities.
