On 16th November, around 200 people attended World Philosophy Day curated by New Acropolis in Mumbai, in association with the National Gallery of Modern Art (Ministry of Culture, Govt. of India).
Philosopher & photographer Pierre Poulain, classical dancer Miti Desai, the Founder of the Kabir Project Shabnam Virmani and the National Director of New Acropolis (India North) Yaron Barzilay, came together to explore the inherent connection between Philosophy and Art, in a panel discussion entitled: Empowering Real Change – Philosophy and Art. What amazed the audience was how similar their message was: that Art is a path to discovering Truth. That the yearning for Beauty leads to Truth and that while our journeys are different our Goal is the same.
