Art vision


Art Vision was founded in the year 1996 by a group of artists belonging to different disciplines such as dance, painting , cinema and literature who wanted to have a common ground for sharing experiences and  creative ideas.  During these years Art Vision has already conducted several events which reflect its multi disciplinary nature. In October 1996 a two days “Festival of Arts for Environment” was organised at the Adivasi ground in Bhubaneswar. Here different forms of art like painting, photography , dance and theatre were brought together to express through their respective medium their concern about environmental issues. A  three days “Festival of films on performing and visual arts” has been conducted  in the month of April every year since 1996 at Soochana Bhawan, Bhubaneswar. This Festival is unique in its kind and has become a much awaited event in the cultural scene of the Capital. During this Festival  artists and students of art from various disciplines find an opportunity to meet and witness cinematic masterpieces on the life and work of classical dancers, musicians, painters and actors. More than forty  films have already been shown directed by eminent directors such as Satyajit Ray, Mani Kaul, Kumar Sahani, Gautam Ghosh and Gulzar.

Besides this, Art Vision is also organising cultural functions in its own mini-auditorium  situated on the picturesque bank of the sacred Bindu Sagara lake in the old Bhubaneswar.   During these functions, less known art forms such as ‘gotipua’ dance and ‘raas leela’ have been presented. Art Vision Dance Academi  runs dance classes in Odissi and  Mayurbhanji Chhau for local and visiting students, for whom hostel facilities are provided in the same compound. Regular Odissi dance programs are  presented by the Academi students for group of visiting tourists, who have the opportunity to round off their visit to the historical temples of old Bhubaneswar by witnessing a live performance of this lyrical dance in its natural settings.
