Patan has been transformed again for yet another travelling gallery of mixed art forms kicking off this weekend with live paintings and installations, workshops, interactive photography, singing in a water spout and guided tours from November 23 till November 25. Twining through the ancient streets of Patan, Kathmandu Micro Galleries and Kaalo 101 will present over 60 creatives who are exploring this year’s theme “Empower!” in a 2-week long arts festival from this Friday until the December 7.
Micro Galleries is a free global arts initiative that uses art as a vehicle to create positive change. They do this through creative interventions in public spaces, workshops, art tours, symposiums, think tanks, and residencies. They work together with communities who are in some kind of social or creative need, and together create new opportunities, imaginings, and creative possibilities.
