'Celebrating Gandhi Jayanti Together'

For the sixth Borderless Gandhi event, the organisation collaborated with the Consulate General of India in Perth, the University of Western Australia (UWA) and the Indian Society of Western Australia. Students from the SANSKRITI Association for Indian Culture and Student Support participated in a panel discussion reflecting on Mahatma Gandhi's values and philosophies of peace, equality and nonviolence and how the same still applies in a contemporary day and age, being just as relevant now as it was during Gandhi's time.

All organisations came together to mark the finale of Mahatma Gandhi’s 150th Birthday Celebrations and reflected upon his message of peace, equality and nonviolence on Friday 2nd October 2020 and was held at Wesfarmer's Theatre at the UWA campus in Perth.

To create a wholesome atmosphere in the networking area and where the guests and audience would arrive at the venue, a display was set up with various items provided by Borderless Gandhi, the Consulate-General of India Perth and Quality Press as well as by individuals and friends of Borderless Gandhi. To accompany the display and promotional items such as the pull-up banners, a slideshow was created and played throughout the evening on a large screen. The foyer area was also used to showcase informative posters created for the event "Borderless Gandhi presents Mahatma's Message" in 2019, where several examples of successful nonviolent campaigns were presented.

Yaso Ponnuthurai and Indian Eye performed music on the evening.
