Aside from the collector chaos that will be showcased at tomorrow’s event, we promised to provide a multi-sensory experience. That’s why we have a few select photographers & illustrators showcasing particulars from their projects; curated ipod & vinyl listening sessions and even short film screenings. All of which guarantee there’ll be something special for every kind of enthusiast.
Just to give you a sneak peak of what you can expect in the flesh, we collated all the above-mentioned creators & curators under Homegrown’s virtual roof. Scroll on to see what you’ll miss if you don’t show up:
I. Film Makers & Short films:
The following are the two films that are poised to be screened tomorrow evening.
A. Baumi Baumsen - Holy Stoked Next Generation
Synopsis: This short documentary depicts the plight of swarms of street children who had only just begun to enjoy the privileges of a free for all skate park, built by The Holy Stoked Collective. This collective has dedicated a fair chunk of their time to both harness these childrens’ talents as well as build this wonderful park and now are being forced to fight against a court case filed by a lawyer who has personal issues with the situation. A must-watch for all those who believe in community support and the importance of creating free spaces for young children to cultivate outdoor skill.

B. Mithun Bhat - The Back of The Busk (Flyer Attached)
Synopsis: New York City is one of the few metropolis’ in the world that supports buskers and is known as a “Busker Haven” when it comes to the audience, reach, and vibe that the city provides. Buskers in NYC receive a tremendous amount of love and support that other cities don’t offer. The city, being a melting pot of different cultures and races, offers great diversity in the busking acts that are performed there. Keeping all of this in mind, the filmmakers captured buskers that really have a zing in one way or the other for showcasing their talent to the world.

E. Tushar Ganguly - Illustrator Designer
Tushar Ganguly believes in magic. “It exists everywhere, if you just knew how to find it. It’s in the smallest of things that you find them; a carpet of leaves in autumn, sunlight trapped in a glass bottle lying on the road. It’s these things that make you realize how fickle life is, and make you appreciate every second that you’re living it. I express myself through my art, through my writing. I put a little bit of me in everything I do.”
