“සංවර්ධනය සහ මිනිස්කම” (පාරිසරික සහ ජනහිතකාමී හෙටක් පිලිබඳ මගේ සිහිනය) - A Reimagining Development Art Exhibition

 

 

‘Development’ has shaped countless lives and changed the landscape of many countries. Yet, it is often used without a clear idea of its meaning; what ‘development’ really is, and what it comprises.The ‘Reimagining Development’ initiative of the Centre for Poverty Analysis (CEPA) in collaboration with Lakbima Newspapers Private Limited organized an island-wide art and essay competition to encourage youth across the country to express their unique vision of development.

 

The response to the competition was overwhelming, and the talents and dreams of the many young artists discovered through the competition is commendable. The paintings of the top forty artists and the essays that were placed in the top ten were on display at the following event:

 

Date: 18th - 21st June 2014

Time: 9:00 am - 6:00 pm

Venue: Colombo Public Library Exhibition Hall

(No. 15, Sir Marcus Fernando Mawatha, Colombo 07)

 Thus far, the endeavour has proved to be an interesting exercise as the artwork is a reflection of the next generation's vision of development and the ways in which they perceive the country should move forward. With this endeavor, CEPA not only intends to simply display the creative artwork, but also to inspire a wider range of individuals in-order to appreciate their diverse visions of development. 

Below is a glimpse of the art that was on display at the exhibition:
