CRACK International Art Camps
CRACK International Art Camp (CIAC) is held every year at Kushtia, a south-western district of Bangladesh. CIAC is designed to engage participants from various artistic disciplines to take part in a collective creative-spree outside the confine of the urban social relations and the arts that proliferate within that boundary. Conceived as a multi-disciplinary art camp, it is a way to reinforce the principle of collectivized, localized form of artistic production. It actually provides the participants with opportunities to mingle with each other and be inspired to address the pressing issues of the present through creative actions. Each year we proceed with a call for entry with camp curator’s note on respective year’s theme. The camp is being held from 25 to 30 December every year. It closes with an open day on December 30. A unique dimension has developed with the inception of this camp in that community. Now local community participate in the camp activity and public art projects. Vibrant community engagement has added greater meaning and flavor to this international art camp.
