Maraa invites you to Blue Print of a Park Imaginarium this Sunday, Aug 18th | Cubbon Park Bandstand 3 pm – 6 pm.
Support Citizen Matters - independent, Reader-funded media that covers your city like no other.
We invite artists of all age groups to come and paint, sketch, draw their imagination for a park. Maraa in collaboration with other groups in Bangalore will be submitting a joint proposal to consider revitalising Cubbon Park with better access, and for diverse uses.
The sketches made at the event will be submitted to the department as well.
Call for participation to the Public
How many times have we been in an open space, and imagined what could have been there. Could a park bench just start flying or could trees start walking with lonely people in the park, could the park become a live circus with trapeze artists and magicians?
At maraa, we have been trying to activate dead and public spaces through creative practice – to create a space for people to wonder, participate and use. We wish to invite people of all ages to paint an imaginarium for a park – create blue prints, sketches, paintings of everything you want a public park to be.
We will be submitting a proposal to the Director, Horticulture Department, responsible for Cubbon Park, in September, towards revitalising Cubbon Park with the hope to that the park is open diverse publics and triggers multiple imaginations. Your blue prints will also be part of this proposal. Be part of the Revitalising Cubbon Park Campaign.
Spread the word. Entry Free. All are welcome. Bring your own paints.
