Expressions of Bihar - 24 Feb - 02 Mar 2017
Art is contagious. If you like Art then there is a great chance you will be interested to see the process, the intricacies, the effort, the hard-work that goes behind the beautiful work.
This interest and strong urge of so many of you pushed us to do something about it and create a medium to connect you with our community of Artists/Weavers.
Chanchal ~ in association with Make It Happen, brings to you an opportunity to spend some time with the community of Artist/Weavers in Bihar.
Make It Happen pioneers in cultural themed travel programs in India and together we have created a unique experience for travel and art lovers.
The first of its kind trip starts with Patna, the capital city of Bihar. From Patna, we head to the land of Sita ~ Madhubani. Madhubani was part of Mithila region, which was the Kingdom of King Janak, Sita’s father.
At Madhubani, you will meet and interact with renowned Artists of one of the most ancient art forms. See them create these beautiful paintings and, if you like, learn the basics while you interact with him.
Explore this old village and see for yourself the struggle, the joy, the daily life of people of Madhubani.
Fromm here, we will further take you to Bhagalpur where weaving is practiced for hundreds of years by the local artisans. We will take you to a weaving community where you can go through the process of weaving of famous Tassar Silk as well as local weaves.
Every place has its own some unique local art forms so we will also get a chance to see the process of making Thread Paintings.
The exploratory trip has even more to it – after Bhagalpur we head to Rajgir where we will visit Gridhakuta, a hill where Buddha carried out many dialogues with his disciples after he achieved enlightenment. Shanti Stupa is at the peak of Gridhakuta, another gem to be touched while we are on our journey.
From here we head to Nalanda. The ruins of the old university can still be found. Let us take a dip in the past here.
The last halt of the trip will be at Bodhgaya. In our quest of finding our own peace, let us explore the heart of Buddhism.
The trip comes to an end at Patna, from where we begin.
So come and experience the various expressions of Bihar with us ~ the land rich in its culture and history.
