The Indian Cultural Centre, Colombo is forming a series of Forums/Clubs to streamline the Centre’s activities and give more focus on the subject of the programme based on the interest of the audience.
A Centre communiqué said the art loving community of Sri Lanka can become members of the Forums by filling up the application form available at the Indian Cultural Centre, 16/2, Gregory’s Road, Colombo 07. The members of the Forums can have opinions on the programmes that have to be conducted at ICC and their participation will be contributing to the quality of each of the programme.
Film Club will be for those who are interested in feature films at regular intervals. There will be regular screenings of films, talks and discussions on a director or a film and screenings of documentaries on directors.
Literary Forum is conceived for literature loving persons and Prose & Poetry readings of important writers will be held at the centre under this banner. In addition lectures and discussions on the literary works and screening of films on writers will also be part of the programmes.
Under the banner of Arts Club slide presentations of works of art of important artists will be conducted and a series of lectures and discussions on artists and art movements will be held. Moreover, screening of documentaries on art and artists is another of its aim.
Music Society is for organising lecture cum demonstrations by eminent musicians, holding Jugal Bandhi to explore the commonalities and differences in Hindustani and Carnatic ragas.
