Campbell Inspires Festival in Gyaan Adab

Hina Siddiqui, programme coordinator of The Heroine’s Journey Festival, says, “The objective of the programme is to start a dialogue towards evolving the representation of women and femme people in the arts and media. Through the festival, we hope to ‘re:FRAME, re:ACT and re:WRITE’, the narrative of the modern-day heroine.” On what led the team to organize the festival, Siddiqui adds that the seeds of the festival were found first in Joseph Campbell’s seminal The Hero with a Thousand Faces. “It has inspired the likes of George Lucas and Dan Harmon and essentially examines a monomyth or the hero’s journey.”
