Ms. Mudita Pasari

Achiever's Success Story

It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation

Mudita Pasari works with educational systems and designed visual interventions through decentralized museological experiences. Working with various educational organizations, she is often involved in developing pedagogical models and effective mediums of awareness, action, and learning. Her ongoing research is around breaking inherited dichotomies, and pushing the boundaries of what we assume is known, making space for true multidimensional existence.

She is currently the Associate Dean of Academics at a design school in India called The Design Village, where a manifestation independent pedagogical model is encouraged and practiced. The village functions as a unique think tank allowing for constant growth and learning, encouraging contribution to a future-looking curriculum and pedagogical shift in design education in India.

She parallelly runs a small design studio, Kiviuq, which has a practice embedded in advocating bio diverse habitation, formed at the cross-section of human interaction and other ecological components in our immediate environments. Her formal undergraduate training is in Exhibition + Spatial Design from the National Institute of Design, India and her Masters is in Art + Design Education from the Rhode Island School of Design, RI

About her current work at TDV she says, “Being associated with The Design Village over the past 4 years has been an incredible experience. To bring about pedagogical shifts in how design education is perceived in India has been a humbling endeavour. 

Having discovered this unique environment and being a part of a courageous think tank, I feel encouraged to dream big and share this experience with today’s design learners. 

To contribute to expanding the village and sharing a future looking curriculum, has been a privilege. The functioning of this unique think tank allows for constant growth and learning. The design learners of today are encouraged to dream big and step out in the world invigorated with the countless prospects of the future. To be a small part of envisioning this pedagogical shift in design education India, has been a humbling endeavor.”
