On the occasion of Bathukamma festival, Department of Language and Culture organised a three-day art camp called ‘Blooming Talents’ at Ravindra Bharathi to encourage native young artists. Inaugurated by B Venkatesham, secretary, Tourism & Culture, Telangana and Mamidi Harikrishna, director, Department of Language & culture, the camp hosted 22 participant artists.

“We have selected highly skilled artists who have just finished their degree to participate in the event,” says M V Ramana Reddy, president, Hyderabad Art Society, and the curator of the art camp.
An interesting part of this three-day event that, artists worked on their pieces at the venue itself which will adorn the walls of Ravindra Bharathi permanently.

Most beautifully illustrate the diverse cultures of Telangana. And it is these diverse depictions of various cultures which made the camp all the more beautiful. A few art pieces depicting certain tribal cultures and Muslim festivities made for a enthralling addition.

“Albeit the concept of this art camp being ‘Telangana’, all the artists are given the liberty of choosing any topic from festivities, cultural aspects to monuments,” explains Ramana Reddy.
The artists’ working with utmost focus, lost in their work in those rustic corridors of Ravindra Bharathi was one exquisite sight to behold. So, next time when you pay a visit to this cultural space, remember, these corridors now have something more fascinating to offer!
