The Aspiration behind Callifest

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.

Highlights

Literature through the eyes of Calligraphy

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.

Time to Act, Because we Care

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.

Special Calligraphy Workshop for Art Teachers

Date: 10 Dec 2018 | Time: 10 am to 1 pm
