Excited to be asked to teach a two-day screenwriting workshop on December 11th and 12th, 2018 to students at Rabindra Bharati University‘s Drama Department. RBU is my Fulbright-Nehru host institution, which I selected due to their commitment to the performing arts and offering a quality arts education to students who may not otherwise be able to afford it.
RBU was founded in 1962 to mark the birth centenary of the legendary playwright and poet Rabindranath Tagore, who was the first Asian recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature. It is a state school named after Tagore and dedicated to the mission of disseminating his thoughts and ideas through humanities, social sciences, art and culture. RBU prides itself for being a center for higher education in performing arts, fine arts, language, literature and social sciences.
