Join us for the first in our series of Arts Walks, as part of Project 560, 2015, through the city of Bangalore with Suresh Moona, noted historian and chronicler of Bangalore's past. Project 560, 2015 is an IFA initative that seeks to creatively engage with the city's found spaces, re-imagine them and bring them alive.
Explore Bangalore's artistic traditions and cultural history as you weave through the timeless lanes ofHanumantha Nagar. An area with a unique balance of natural beauty and rich history, Hanumantha Nagar is ideally suited to examine Bangalore's connection with the arts. Travel through time as you meander past Kala Mandira, Ananda Milanadri Gudda, Harihara Gudda and Gavi Gangadhareshwara temple.
This first Arts Walk will begin at Kala Mandira, the hub of art and culture that has created a community for the arts in this pocket of Hanumantha Nagar. Established by renowned art patron A N Subba Rao, and currently flourishing under the leadership of A M Prakash, Kala Mandira has continually supported and encouraged the arts.
Suresh Moona established an NGO, An Association for Reviving Awareness About Monuments of Bengaluru Heritage(AARAMBH) in 1985, to encourage others fascinated in exploring this 470 year-old city. He shares his extensive knowledge and passion for Namma Ooru, through his writing, and by organising talks, exhibitions and walks around the city.
