Bhubaneswar: Sasatwa Foundation in collaboration with BOCCA brings you ‘Kolab’, a show celebrating feminine vitality, beauty and courage. As part of International Women’s Day we have come together to acknowledge, appreciate and honour women artists and activists from across the globe. We showcase here some of the most extraordinary thought provoking master pieces to mark the impact that women are making in our society, economy, culture and politics every day, around the world.
Named after Odisha’s life giving river, originating in Sinkara Hills in the Eastern Ghats of Koraput district, Kolab synonymously stands for life, dignity and strength. In its true abstraction, just like a river joins together with its rivulets and tributaries to bring more exuberance to the people living on its banks, similarly, Sasatwa Foundation and BOCCA join forces to bring Kolab to the people of Bhubaneswar.
It is a step forward in initiating conversations on the role women play in shaping our future through the powerful medium of art.
