The UnBox Caravan was a two-week event at NID Ahmedabad
exploring the theme “Connected Communities & Digital Futures”. It
was a customised edition of the UnBox LABS meant for a smaller,
hand-selected set of participants to collaboratively explore shared
learning, experiences, and research.
The Caravan explored an immersive people-centred learning experience
through an emergent process that was not predefined, but instead evolved
through the collective energies and interests of the group. It
catalysed cross-disciplinary projects built on interactions &
dialogue between creative practitioners and researchers through an
immersive, hands-on lab experience, which built on previous UnBox
The broad theme for this edition of the Caravan allowed participants
to explore projects and ideas around people-centred technologies, and
social applications of technology, through the lens of
multi-disciplinary approaches that are future-facing and sustainable.
With the Caravan, UnBox continues its emphasis on interdisciplinary,
intercultural collaborations, where creative practices work alongside
research in order to contribute to global discourse while still
remaining hyper-local, sustainable, hands-on, demonstrable, and rich in
process. This edition of the UnBox Caravan was in partnership with
Mozilla Foundation, British Council and NID Ahmedabad.
