IPEP India 2017 – Homeland
‘Homeland’ an idea that evokes a feeling of belonging. We have chosen the theme for IPEP 2017 as Homeland, aiming at an emotional appeal that crosses the ethnic borders and hierarchy of societies. The concept of space that we call as home, bonds with the root that has a collective identity. It shapes our culture strongly yet so subconsciously that we sense the pull of the bond only when distance is created. The emotional connect with the personal to global context will be the key to the endeavour.
