Inkpot India
Re-inking our cultural heritage

Youth Art and Writing Competition

You know our mission – to make Indian art and culture cool again. Create anything, anything meaning non-fiction or fiction prose (between 1000-1500 words), poetry or its collection, visual art, short film (between 4 to 6 minutes), that resonates with this idea. It could be Indian characters in a short story or film, an essay about something misunderstood in your culture. Let your imagination free, create something that matters to you so that it can matter to others, and most of all, have fun with this.

    With Inkpot in the Neighbourhood, our hope is to bridge the gap between the audience and the performer. Everyone has a story to tell and the craft can only be honed through practice and performance. The stage is open for one and all – as much for your perfected pieces as for your imperfect ones. Reach out to us to showcase what you’re all about!

    Re-inking our cultural heritage

    ART AND WRITING COMPETITION

    One of Inkpot’s major goals is to encourage today’s youth to engage with Indian art and literature. So, in the same vein, create something, something meaning non-fiction or fiction prose, poetry or a collection, visual art or short film, that resonates with this idea. You hold the reins of this project – write about a cultural or social phenomenon, emulate (not imitate) the work of a painter, tells a story very desi in its flavor, or anything else that you care about, which shows your engagement with Indian art.

    Let your imagination free, create something that matters to you so that it can matter to others, and most of all, have fun with this.

    Three pieces of work best reflecting our mission while showing general excellence will be awarded and get a chance to interact with pioneers of their fields.
