Art: A community of art

Public art initiative Whitefield Art Collective (WAC) is back with its fifth edition, themed on sustainability. The month-long festival, which started on 7 February, promotes regional art and artists, featuring a unique mix of programming and commissioned works, in partnership with regional institutions. Since it’s a community art fest, this year’s collaborators include the Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology, JD Institute of Fashion Technology, Bangalore Creative Circus, Indian Garbage Collective, The Broke Artist Collective, Aravani Arts Project, and Synaesthesia Collective & Art Flute. Members of the public may also contribute through programmes like UnGallery, which turns spaces within the venue into gallery nooks, and a Basement Art Project that invites students from art schools and city art groups to paint the walls of the venue’s basement. —SB
