Sarsunar Theke Jana derives from the metropolis

Concept Note

A public art festival in Sarsuna, Kolkata 9th-10th June 2016
 An arts, ecology and community programme that asks people to map the aesthetics, cultural and biodiversity of their local neighbourhood. Working in collaboration with artists, participants are brought together in an exploration of people and place. The programme aims to increase dialogue within and between communities about the impacts of cultural differences, migration, climate chaos, biodiversity loss and the destruction of habitat, to breakdown negative cultural stereotypes and strengthen intercultural understanding.
