Immerse yourself in the colourful, vibrant and transformative arts of India. Over three weeks we will dive into a world where art is not created only to be hung on walls or walled-up inside museums but is celebrated as part of rich daily life for almost a quarter of humanity.
Blending the religions, philosophies, history and arts of incredible India, we will explore statues that are gods, paintings that dance, and temples that channel the very energies of mother earth. Hindus, Buddhists, Jains, Sikhs and others have long used art as an expression of our place in a vast and dazzling cosmos. More than this however, music, dance, painting, sculpture and architecture have been lovingly created as vehicles that shift our perceptions and that can transport us to other states of being. From Shiva’s dance to the Buddha’s enigmatic smile, the living arts of India are a beautiful and powerful window into a bigger world.
