We celebrated World Philosophy Day 2019 (Bangalore, India)

World Philosophy Day

New Acropolis celebrated ‘International Day of Philosophy 2019‘ in partnership with Sublime Galleria at Art Bengaluru festival 2019.

The Butterfly Effect, an interactive art installation, was a prominent draw at the festival. This was open to the public through the entire duration of the festival (all of the  month of November).

The high-point of the festivities was the Talk – ‘The Art of Observation‘ on Saturday 16th Nov 2019, held within a prominent art gallery. We had a houseful audience, and the talk was very well received. Each person in the hall was enthralled with the exercises included all though the presentation. Everyone connected to the essence – about the method for observation and evaluation of art – as indeed a way for us to live life itself.
