Goa, India, May 17, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- This Dandi March in 2011 by a group of 4 artists aims to visualize the historical geography by collecting and capturing photographs throughout the walk to develop a visual narrative of people's personal and collective memoirs about Gandhi and his philosophy.
The participating artists are, Ajit Bhadoriya, Edson Dias, Chaitanya Guttikar, and P. Madhavan who shall be equipped with the pinhole, medium format and large format cameras loaded with films. The march will start on the 6th of July from Sabarmati and will end at Dandi, Gujarat.
The four artist marchers have a commitment to teach 4 youth in the village where Gandhi rested for the day (List of villages). Four youth volunteers would be selected from the village and taught, by each of these marching artists, on the basic photography skills giving them an opportunity to visually represent their village and culture. This is a small step towards igniting youth’s imagination, creativity and self-expression through photography.
This march being initiated by Goa Center for Alternative Photography (Goa-CAP) aims to culminate with a series of photo-exhibitions, multimedia presentations and a book.
The total envisaged expenditure on the project is Rs.6,72,000/- (Six lakh seventy two thousand Rupees only / 16,000$). The fund required is not for the march but for the post production. Goa-CAP is looking for your valuable support to make this event a success.
