Aarong: The story behind the label
Description: Nakshi katha sarees begin on quiet afternoons, when golden honey light is filtering through the trees, children are rolling old bicycle tyres in and out of the long shadows along leafy roads with sticks and birds are calling. What began as an activity to fill spare time evolved over generations into the poet Jasim Uddin’s field of fabric, on which women embroidered the symbols of their lives. The motifs of the nakshi kantha are so detailed that they are often referred to as a ‘folk alphabet’. This clip explores the story of a nakshi katha from this year’s Eid collection, told through that alphabet.

The Graduation Model  Escaping extreme poverty
Description: Every year millions around the world are affected by various natural calamities and disasters. South Asia is one of the most climate-vulnerable regions. Across the region, many communities face poverty and extreme challenges from natural disasters, such as floods, droughts, and cyclones. With current climate change projections, these issues will only grow. Eliminating poverty requires new models that empower people to survive and even thrive in the face of changing environments and weather-related incidents. Organised by BRAC Social Innovation Lab, the 2016 Frugal Innovation Forum will look at innovations in climate change, disaster management, adaptive livelihood and agriculture. We will build on the global discussions at COP21 in Paris and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), but with a clear focus on the priorities for South Asia.
