Paalam - connecting art, artists and art lovers
Paalam, as the name signifies, is an art forum that is being launched with a view to create a bridge between fine arts, artists and art lovers. Founded by Mudhra Bhaskar and Dr.Radha Bhaskar who have over two decades of experience as musicians and cultural organizers, Paalam aims at spreading art and cultural awareness through organizing educative programmes pertaining to all fine art forms. Apart from various objectives like conducting lecture-demonstrations for creating awareness about the nuances of various art forms, conducting Music Appreciation workshops, organizing music workshops in schools and colleges, conducting congregational singing in corporation schools and creating an exclusive website on educative aspects of fine arts, Paalam will also utilize the web technology by organizing virtual school and webcasting lectures and other educative programmes through the net.
Paalam has also devised a unique “52 week webcast project” wherein on a particular day in the week, a music, dance or drama will be webcast for the benefit of all art lovers. This will enable rasikas to be connected to the arts and also appreciate it better.
Paalam was inaugurated formally on 16th June 2013 by Dr.Nalli Kuppuswamy Chetti and noted journalist Gnani presided over the function. A very interesting panel discussion on the topic “Performing arts – preserving quality amidst changing trends” was held and eminent personalities in the rat field participated and shared their views.
