Kiran Nadar Museum of Art presents a new workshop ‘Dvaya Kala’

New Delhi: Visual and performing arts have a strong influence on the development of society. The Visual Arts such as photography, painting, sculpting and drawing and performing arts such as theatre, public speech, dance, music and more, give a way to express feeling, emotion, opinion, or taste. While the one is displayed and the other is performed, they complement each other, forming a seamless continuum. Not only do the arts provide pleasure and creative inspiration, they also help foster dialogue and bring important issues to the public eye.

Art has the amazing power to foster cross-cultural understanding and collaboration between different societies as artists in all cultures deal with the essentials of human existence, shorn of the external rules and trappings of societies.

Through these series of workshops, participants will immerse themselves in the wonderful world of folk art and classical dance forms. We will be focusing on making of various products like bookmarks, coasters, gift cards etc. At the same time shedding light on different folk art styles like Kanchi, Bharni, Gonda.
