"….. in India, the greatest efflorescence of a national Art has been associated with the employment of the artistic genius to illustrate or adorn the thoughts and fancies or the temples and instruments of the national religion. This was not because Art is necessarily associated with the outward forms of religion, but because it was in the religion that men’s spiritual aspirations centered themselves."

Sri Aurobindo, (National Value of Art)

AuroBharati, Sri Aurobindo Society Union Territory of Puducherry presents National Capacity Building Program for Artist & Cultural Professionals on 1st June, 2023 at Sri Aurobindo Society, 11, Saint Martin Street, Union Territory of Puducherry, India.

Art in its nature is universal which has always been a creative way to present the integral vision through the ages. An artist fosters creativity and intellectual insights into society at large. In the words of Sri Aurobindo ‘It is so far true that an artist can out of a thing that is ugly, repellent, distorted create a form of aesthetic power, intensity, revelatory force.’ There is a need for the preservation of this rich heritage for sustainability.

National Capacity Building Program for Artist & Cultural Professionals is a strategy to provide a platform for creative expression and capacity building. The approach is to include local resources and communities and to bring in lived experiences also to drive the holistic enhancement followed by theoretical and practical sessions.

Identifying individual artists and creative entrepreneurs with the objective in strengthening the creative economy with the development of talent and creative entrepreneurs is one of the focused areas of this workshop. This will also include professional development and a capacity-building program for regional artists of all disciplines and to create a local artist ecosystem. The initial stage will cover community engagement events designed to simultaneously engage in the creative community
