As part of the dlr Arts Office theme of 'New Life', they invited Galway based artist Pavithra Kannan to deliver this 2 part workshop focused on conversations - the act of talking or doing something with other people with a new perspective on making a tea and creating Art from the used tea bag.

Through this interaction, the workshop will explore the concept of rebirth, an idea that has become necessary during the current era of the COVID pandemic and its personal and social consequences.

Tea will function as a nucleus agent to traverse and create an equivocal space for dialogue.
