Craft and Community Development Foundation is going to organise “Modern Tribal” group show, which are the selections from the Gondwana Art Project.

The Foundation takes up projects for upskilling artisans by introducing new concepts and design, keeping intact the authenticity of their art.

Gondwana Art Project is focused on tribal artisans from the Gondwana Region in central India, practicing Gond, Bhil, Warli, Sohrai and Kohvar art. The Foundation selects artists for this project based on assessment of
quality of work, talent, and current economic status.

The objective is to create a platform for these tribal artists to present their work and their perspectives demonstrating their creativity and craftsmanship, introducing new methods and techniques that express both traditional and contemporary imagery and values.

The artists involved in The Gondwana Art project create artworks, under guidance and mentoring by CCDF designers. The project aims to ensure that the artworks are unique pieces of tribal art incorporating design elements keeping in mind a wide range of global audiences.

During the project the artisans are allowed to freely express their skills and experiment with new techniques, design and color palette, to create modern and contemporary tribal artworks. CCDF has facilitated artisans to work remotely through online platforms and digital media, ensuring uninterrupted engagement with CCDF designers even during lockdowns due to COVID.

CCDF is attempting to provide a sustained livelihood to the tribal artisans engaged under The Gondwana Art Project, during these unprecedented times.

When: February 7 -9
Where: Visual Arts Gallery, India Habitat Centre, New, Institution Area, Lodi Colony, New Delhi
