Website Review - Art at Work
The theme for this time is
"Art at Work - communities that promote art & artists"
Aarohan Theatre Group
Started in the early 90's as a private theatre group in Nepal with handful of people, Aarohan Theatre Group has come a long way today as being a creative group that promotes local art & culture. It has gained international reputation as being a great cultural institution as well as national reputaion as a revolutionary institution.
And now with its own art school Gurukul, it has produced a number of new theatre artists, some of whom have even been succesful lately as movie artists. In a way, Aarohan / Gurukul has single handedly started a theatre culture in Nepal. Not to mention other out of the box activities, such as street dramas to longest painting art from Dharahara. And a nice website too.
Another untraditional organization in Nepal - Photo Circle. Established just a couple of years back, photo.circle have been providing amateur to professional photographers & artists a common platform to showcase their work to a larger audience.
In their words, they have been building a community of storytellers who continuously create, share and learn. And getting a lot of partners to do so as well. A great community & a simple website - well updated.
