ORGANIZER: Swarnim Lamsal and 100TPC Nepal
On 24th September 2016, in association with an international group, 100TPC, Nepal organized a creative symposium at Tribhuvan University, Kathmandu to help 18 various artists (poets and painters) showcase their abilities amidst an enthusiast audience. While the bilingual (English and Nepali) poetic words from debutant and published poets echoed the venue with a wide array of subjects -including national and international social and political critiques, masturbation, menstruation, love, sexual molestation among others; the brushes from a fresher formed a montage to show how art and its subjects can indeed be an escape from the humdrum ways of life. Whatever the means, the arts that were exhibited indeed bring a sense of change- in the way we perceive things, in the imageries we denote to any object and in the associations we make of any word or idea.
This program began with a belief that when one creative mind is in conjunction with the like minds, the consequences is certainly a greater degree of happiness and satisfaction. This belief actually came true as audiences were in high praise for having begun the day with such creative voices and visions. The 80-minutes event showed mind boggling ideas and vivid details of the contemporary time in various expressions.
