Discussion on day one focused on issues such as the purposes, types and styles of art writing, audience’s reception, and working with an editor. Each participant had to submit in advance a text of up to 2,500 words and on the 16th and 17th participants reviewed each text in detail and discussed its strengths and weaknesses. Workshop was sponsored by the Foundation for Indian Contemporary Art (FICA).

On November 16, Keith gave a talk about Yishu and discussed its history, mandate, role, structure, philosophy, distribution, and challenges. Thirty people attended and actively participated in the discussion.
