*CBCI Office for SC/BC organising the Second Dalit Christian Artists Workshop*
Reminder (The First circular was sent on 10th October 2018)
The CBCI Office for SC/BC is organising a Dalit Christian Artists workshop at ISI Bangalore from 18th to 20th January 2019. This is the second edition. The artists will be guided by senior artist Dr. Jothi Sahi from Bangalore during these three days. Sarianna Kranz and Jussi Eskolaartists from Sweden will be also with us during the workshop.
*Purpose of the Workshop*
Arts (Drawings and Paintings) play an important role in the lives of the marginalised people. Through drawings and paintings we can visually express our culture, lives, joys, happiness, agonies, and rights.
The workshop for the Dalit Christian Artists is aimed at bringing together the Dalit artists at the National level. They will be motivated to paint and draw from the perspective of the Oppressed and Marginalised communities at the same time keeping in mind the rich cultural history of the Dalits.
*Exhibition*: There will be an exhibition of the art works prepared by the artists at a later date. After the art exhibition the art works can be taken by the artists. The ownership of the art pieces belongs to the artists. A small portion of the sale of the art works will be shared by the CBCI Office for SC/BC.
May I request you to identify and encourage the Dalit Christian artists who can participate and contribute to the workshop.
*Please Note*: It is not a training but production of Dalit arts. So please don’t encourage people who want to learn arts. This workshop is to produce Dalit Christian Arts.
