‘Callifest’ is the flagship event of Achyut Palav School of Calligraphy. As the name goes this event is a festival… a celebration of Indian scripts. The first event was held in 2008 and this year is the 4th edition of the same. It is a basket of events spread over 6 days which include Exhibitions, Workshops, Calligraphy Demonstrations, Lectures and Presentations by Experts.
Though traditionally, calligraphy is the art of ‘Beautiful Writing’, in the past few decades it is proven to be an excellent tool of effective communication. Calligraphy has evolved to great lengths with its ability to exploit the letters &words to visually convey the intensity of the meaning.
Calligraphy is inspired by literature and in turn it aesthetically enhances the meanings of the words conveying text effectively. This year Callifest pays an artistic tribute to the works of Indian writers and poets by recreating their literary gems in calligraphy. To allow visitors to appreciate the profundity of our literature, at the same time get a glimpse of our beautiful scripts, literary works in various languages across India will be chosen.
Art gives people food for thought; it encourages thinking different & pioneers new ideas. It influences people with impressive visuals and impacting messages. Callifest will harness this power of art to highlight various social issues plaguing India today. Issues like Need to Ban Plastics, Organ & Blood Donation, Swachh Bharat, Saving the Girl Child, Child Labour etc. will be highlighted using creative messages in calligraphy.
Date: 10 Dec 2018 | Time: 10 am to 1 pm
