56 Urban Unraveling and Utopia – Towards a Conscious Bengaluru


 

56 Urban Unraveling and Utopia

 

The inaugural symposium conducted in collaboration with IGNCA-RCB, introduced the ideas and notions of the first cohort of Conscious Cities Bengaluru - twelve experts, twelve artists, two community engagement groups, and a six young social change-makers. Identity, connectivity, facility, and sensibility across the scales of interventions in the city were explored through four panel discussions. Every panel had an unconventional mix of experts and artists/activists in order to create a seamless and jargon-agnostic flow of ideas through constructive debates.

 

 

The artists - musicians, painters, street-play actors, poets, writers, and storytellers were also a major part of the symposium (and Artize Conscious Bengaluru Exhibition); they interacted with the experts and community activists to find inspiration for their narratives. Furthermore, the discourse developed through these dialogues will be taken forward through a series of lectures and artistic engagements staged at different locations in the city in every quarter of the coming year, starting in November.

These curated events will create a live and conscious interface with the public. This way the city becomes the core element of the dialectic discussions and aesthetic experience - as the canvas, observer, concept, and the art itself.
