Alternative Medicine Marketplace


Fully booked

Thursday 15 February 2018


From Ayurvedic diets to therapeutic massage to yoga, traditional medical knowledge and practices from across South Asia are often labelled as ‘alternative medicine’ while stressing their ‘authentic’ nature, but what do ‘alternative’ and ‘authentic’ mean? And what happens when these practices are commercialised, patented or de-contextualised? Join us to discuss alternative medicine in the context of the global wellness marketplace.

This event is FREE. Tickets will become available below from 11.00 on Friday 26 January.
