Description

India, a nation that symbolizes "Cultural Diversity" is the nest of the world's largest variety of art forms, some of them dating back to centuries.

While the age of globalization has seen India's stellar growth in various spheres, it has also seen some of the most ancient art forms of India fading into oblivion.

In the nooks and corners of rural India, live many such artists whose only source of pride and income is the art that they have carried forward through ages.

We, the students of VGSoM came up with this initiative called Kalakaar Vikas to rejuvenate these dying art forms by these traditional artists with a wider platform for acceptance and sustenance. Kalakaar Vikas, the unique art and craft fair which saw a record footfall of over 3000 per day last year is back in its 4th season with the celebration of the art of India.

Venue: IIT KGP, Tech Market , Puja Ground
