Even though I am not in Mumbai at the moment, I would love to introduce you to the Sankalp Kala Bazaar. It is a great initiative, which I have always supported as it ensures that the traditional art forms continue to thrive. Last year, I had picked up some lovely pieces for my drawing room, a beautifully embroidered bag and little trinkets, too. So, let me tell you a little about this wonderful initiative.
After four successful years, Sankalp Samaj Utthan Samiti, Delhi-based NGO that works towards preserving the traditional Indian art & craft is organizing 5th edition of their annual Art & Craft exhibition, Sankalp Kala Bazaar 2014, in Mumbai from the 5th– 10th August 2014. This exhibition is being held in order to help artisans in a way wherein they get a chance to display and sell their work in traditional Indian handicrafts in metro cities across the country. It is being held at Coomaraswamy Hall, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya, Fort.
