48c Public.Art.Ecology: Public Eco.Art in Delhi City
48c Public.Art.Ecology is a city wide festival wherein some 24 art projects themed on ecology have been installed in some 8 public spaces in the city.
The festival has been on since December 12th and was launched by the Lt. Governor of Delhi at Max Mueller Bhawan.
So far, thousands of citizens have been to the sites, experienced the installations and left their feedback. We’ve literally painted the city pink, and you cannot miss the projects at the below mentioned sites.
We invite you to make a trip to the sites at Kashmere Gate, Jantar Mantar, Roshanara Bagh, Palika Bazaar/CP, Ramlila Maidan, Chandni Chowk, Barakhamba Road and Mandi House!
As Delhi Greens, the outreach coordinators for the festival, we have woven a series of talks and walks (not to mention the urban eco-bus tours) around the festival.
We launched the first-of-its-kind Delhi Urban Ecotourism Bus trip last Saturday (13th December) and would be taking another tour today and then another tomorrow.
Today (December 19th), at 4 pm, we have organized a talk by Faiyaz A. Khudsar, Wildlife Ecologist and Park Manager, Yamuna Biodiversity Park. He would speak on ‘Parks and Urban Biodiversity’ at 20, Barakhamba Road, New Delhi. The interactive talk will be for one hour, just below a tree hanging from a crane!
Tomorrow (December 20th) at 4 pm,we have organized a talk by Professor Vikram Soni on the “Yamuna in Delhi” at Kashmere Gate (the monument). He would show a small film on the (economic) importance of the Yamuna floodplains to Delhi and have an interactive discussion thereafter.
All of you are invited for the above mentioned two interactive talks.
We are concluding the Festival with an Indian Ocean performance (Live in Concert) at Hamsadhwani Open Air Theater, Pragati Maidan, Delhi). All of you are invited for the same, and free passes can be collected from Max Mueller Bhawan, KG Marg, New Delhi.
We hope you would visit the 48c Public.Art.Ecology – now in its last three days – and would experience Public Eco.Art. like never seen before in Delhi!
