Bhubaneswar,15/10 ( Odisha Samachar / Sonali Lenka ) – Odisha Biennale is back again with its 2nd festival, Odisha Biennale 2015. As promised during the last festival in 2013, Odisha Biennale 2015 would showcase even larger number of artists from various creative fields.
On 11th October 2015, the festival slowly started to peep into the picturesque city of Bhubaneswar by organising a craft workshop at the deaf and dumb school in Palashpalli, by an art curator from Japan, Miss Nanako Koyama. Miss Koyama had joint hands with Mudra Foundation previously to organise art exhibitions and craft workshops for kids at various places like Lalit Kala Academic, KISS, XIMB etc. Her love and admiration for this place has brought her back again to do yet another ethical, fun loving and artistic workshop with the deaf and dumb students of the school.
The workshop instantly picked up from the moment it started when Miss Koyama asked them to create a collage using pictures and text from magazines and newspapers on top of traditional leaf plates of Odisha. Throughout the workshop we could see how the kids not only enjoyed but also showed their creative skills.
