INTACH reaches out to Mangaluru city schools

MANGALURU: Through the Heritage Clubs in faculties, Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH) has determined to reach out to varsities of Mangaluru. Heritage Club programmes are designed to involve scholars in various activities geared against heritage consciousness and training for finding out a craft, museum visits and conservation.

Subhas Basu, convener, INTACH, Mangaluru Chapter stated, "Work in this regard has already begun. We hope to launch Heritage Clubs in schools at the earliest. We are in the process of identifying schools and teachers who will be trained to run the clubs," he stated.

INTACH's journey to preserve heritage in Mangaluru began about two years ago from Kodial Guttu West. Since its formal inauguration, a number of exhibitions and lectures were held including an exhibition on native built heritage and development subject matter. Some of the events organised integrated heritage walks to Barkur, a talk on computational understanding of 'Karnataka Dravida' Temple builders all the way through Kalyani Chalukyas, workshop on Kaavi Kale and exhibition of photograph stories on Kamaladevi Chattopadhyay.

INTACH hopes to play the most important position all the way through the implementation of Smart City projects and in addition on achieving out to varsities.

"As a step further, we would like to document schools that are more than a century old. This will include listing and documentation of schools for which 30-40 schools have been identified. Those involved in the documentation are mostly members of INTACH and architecture and history students," stated Basu.

Apart from starting heritage golf equipment in faculties, INTACH hopes to involve kids in workshops the place scholars are uncovered to traditional artwork and craft. In this course, a one day fingers -on workshop on KaaviKale- an ornamental artwork type of Konkan region was once held in January. INTACH now plans to teach Kaavi Kale to extra schoolchildren to assist keep the standard artwork form, added Basu.

So far, documentation of prominent puts like Basadis of Moodbidri and a few traditional properties were undertaken. Now that 'younger INTACH's publication for kids is being brought out in Kannada, Basu says, it is more straightforward to reach out to the students of Karnataka.
