The Delhi NCR region is prepared to get a prominent new cultural center for the arts, a space that will encourage experimentation, research, education, residences, and performances of all kinds including visual, performing, and culinary arts.
A virtual launch of Confluence Ideathon 2021 x Serendipity Arts Foundation, an arts hackathon, launched to build creative solutions to difficulties related to the setting up of a new cultural center for the arts was also organized lately.
This would be a center that is in its heart and soul Indian, but also a global center that will act as a bridge between India and the world. The arts of this nation, the South Asian region, and the rest of the world said Sunil Kant Munjal, Chairman, Hero Enterprises.
The Delhi NCR project has collaborated with a host of educational institutions, including the Royal College of Arts London, IIM Ahmedabad, IIT Roorkee, IIM Visakhapatnam, IIM Bodh Gaya, IIM Amritsar, IIT Roorkee, BML Munjal University, and NIFT Kannur.
Application ideas will be reviewed through three rounds of successive deliberation by the jury throughout January and February 2021. The deliberations will lead into the Ideathon Week, which is slated for February 23 to March 4.
Successful ideas will have to explore the challenges of building a large, multi-purpose, urban cultural center that addresses the needs of tomorrow. The focus is on finding answers to questions that impact different visitor experiences and resource-use and participants are invited to harness the potential of emerging technology.
Joining the initiative as a knowledge partner, Serendipity Arts Foundation & Festival’s Director, Smriti Rajgarhia said, We are proud to be related with an initiative of this nature that seeks to enhance the creative potential of the people and help the arts sector forge towards innovative solutions. Through this Ideathon, not only will we be able to create a sustainable cultural landmark in the National Capital Region, but we will also be able to share a cultural legacy for generations to come she contended.
