Introducing ‘The heART’ of Kerala
By Pinkerala News Desk | May 14, 2018
On the 6th of May, the first edition of an art event called ‘The heART’ sessions took place. We spoke to the founders of this art community, Abdul Manaf, and Sachin Rajeev about the event and what they envision.
Together with Art from heART
As one can see ‘Art’ is the heart of the logo and name. The heART is a virtual space for art, artists and for people who love creation and creativity. The idea behind is to bring together different forms of art and show people that art is not mutually exclusive and can, in fact, complement each other. The concept is not just to have a concert or an art installation, but create niche handcrafted art experience for people. The community is also about promoting conversations/discussions/debates and of course celebrating art, music, and creativity in general not only on social media platform but also by conducting live sessions with artists.
The Force Behind
The founder Abdul Manaf doubles as an Ad agency creative head by day and a live music critic and aficionado by night. His friend & partner founder Sachin Rajeev is a musician and the lead singer of the Band Chidakasha who also is an artist manager.
The 1st event
Their first curated performance which was held at Studio Pepperfry at Panampilly Nagar received immense warmth & appreciation from the art world in Kochi. Two amazing musical performances by Vishnu Varma and GrapeguitarBox was followed by a treatise on a painting by artist extraordinaire Sachin M.S (Artist Sachin). The evening then was wrapped up by an unplanned jam session by Chidakasha.
Looking to the future
The ultimate goal of ‘The heART’ is to achieve a community for the people who think from their heart. One does not take up any form of art because it makes logical sense, Art always comes from the heart. So this platform is for people to come together and speak about their art and find other people who have similar interests.
Going forward, the sessions will be a monthly one, each edition hoping to change the format and introduce different kinds of art & creativity to the audience along with music performances by acclaimed artists which will be a constant.
