The Santhe, a street art festival, is being organised by the Karnataka Chitrakala Parishath (KCP) for the seventh consecutive year.
The main aim of the Santhe is to provide artists a platform to showcase their creativity and contribution towards art. Paintings, sculptures, cartoons and art installations will be part of the displays.
The santhe helps identify and encourage young artists, while educating people about art and its importance. The aim is also to make art affordable and available to all sections of society.
For the Santhe, the entire stretch between Shivananda Circle and Windsor Square will be cordoned off.
The stalls will be provided to the artists free of cost. Students and teachers from the 32 art schools in the State are expected to participate this year. An audio-visual presentation on the State’s rich cultural heritage will also be organised on the occasion.
