is a candle making workshop where participants play with different kinds of wax to create a candle that is also a marker of the participant's individual idea of beauty. There will be two modes of facilitation for the workshop - one as instructions of how to make a candle, and the other will be inputs of community members belonging to the marginalized notion of beauty and wax products attached to it. For example, we'll explore the beauty industry and the process of waxing as a facilitator input and experience the action of waxing, the effort that an individual puts in to confirm with set societal norms of beauty, and question how and why this standard is set. The audience will participate and several such small actions/ triggers that will lead the discussion on beauty while also creating a candle that manifests an individual expression of beauty.
