Charpai Challenge

ADI in association with the Serendipity Arts Festival has organized the Charpai Challange, which is a competition inviting students and professionals to interpret the Charpai in a contemporary way. It aims to explore this furniture item, from a historical and cultural point of view, and at the same time, project it into the future, by inviting leading thinkers and designers to interpret the Charpai, and present it at the festival and position it in creative ways, thereby inviting use, as well as recognition of the Charpai as furniture that is relevant and unique to us.

The curator of the project, Mr. Ayush Kasliwal, will be organising demonstrations and interactive discussions accompanied by a workshop with Charpai weavers from Bikaner which would expose participants to the possibilities of weaving, and also to the simplicity of this traditional furniture.

Date: 18th September 2018
