This year Startup Oasis wanted to create and alternative space in the fest and so invited JaipurMeraShehar to create and design a space that brings together and celebrate the spirit of community/individual initiatives and innovations.
- Date: 5-6 Nov.
- Venue: Jaipur Exhibition and Convention Centre, Sitapura

We are calling this alternative space Mela Hub in association with Jaipur Mera Shehar. Mela Hub shall be running parallel to the main event & intends to
- showcase traditional craft forms of Jaipur,
- have interactive and experiential sessions with individual innovators/explorers.
along with other activities like Story telling, Musical evening, Drum Circle, Startup Quiz, Community Car Painting, Graffiti, Community Book Corner. More details https://goo.gl/pocoqL
The theme of the event is to support local traditions and community/individual initiatives or innovations by providing them an interactive and experiential platform.
Gift economy: We intend to make art and crafts of all forms even more accessible and experiential to Community at large. Hence, the fest will be conducted in the spirit of gift culture and we leave it open for people to value the sessions and products and choose how much they want to pay and support the organisers/Craftsmen/collaborators for this event.
We have happily accepted the offer and are in the process of designing the space, talking to possible collaborators and preparing the sessions.
