With the announcement of initiating an Art Writer’s Hub, a four-day Art Writing Workshop organized by the Arts Programme of Bengal Foundation ended yesterday (August 2, 2017). Conducted by artist, writer and critic Mustafa Zaman, the workshop provided precise and methodical lectures to enable the professionals of the field to achieve the next level.
The workshop became a platform for exchanging ideas, analyzing some best examples of art writing from home and abroad and reviewing works of the participants.
At the end of the first three-day session of the workshop, the participants took an interval to write features about different topics of art. Yesterday was the final session where their features were reviewed by Mustafa Zaman and later certificates have been distributed among them.
To continue the discussion and practice of art writing, Bengal Foundation is initiating the Art Writer’s Hub where anyone can join. The hub will provide platform for the writers and publish their write-ups through a blog and regular publications by the Arts Programme.
