BANGALORE: 'Berserk 2014' - the 3-Day Residential Art Conference for Children is back with its 2nd edition. Launched in 2013 by Sublime Galleria, to motivate, inspire and facilitate children, between 8-14 years of age, to discover and pursue their artistic talents, this initiative has already witnessed extremely successful auditions this year.
Berserk's much-anticipated 2nd edition held this year saw 2000 students from 50 leading schools audition to take part in the conference. The tremendous success of the inaugural edition of 'Berserk' was reinforced by the fact that parents travelled with their children all the way from Delhi, Chennai and Chikmagalur to participate in the open auditions. Eventually, 110 students were selected by mentors from Evam, Lourd Vijay Dance Studio (LVDS), Taaqademy and 3-Peel, to spend an exciting three days engaging and interacting with the award-winning mentors at ECC, Whitefield.
Uzma Irfan - Founder, Sublime Galleria and Conceptualizer and Organizer - 'Berserk' said, "It gives me immense pleasure to present the 2nd edition of this unique event. Inspired and motivated by the immense response received by our debut event last year, I am further encouraged by an even more overwhelming response this year. It was a pleasure to see the excitement of the children as they geared up to audition for the various art forms that interested them among music, dance, theatre and visual art. I look forward to an exciting 3 days of the conference followed by the Grand Finale of 'Berserk 2014'."
About the Event:
The Residential Art Conference for 'Berserk 2014' will take place at ECC, Whitefield from 24th-27th August, 2014. The grand finale of the event will be held on 27th August 2014 at the Amphitheatre, UB City where the mentors and students will showcase their talent through various awe-inspiring performances. There will be performances from all 4 verticals including a rendition of 'Macbeth' from Evam; Hip-hop, Salsa and Kathak performances from Lourd Vijay Dance Studio (LVDS); a musical performance by Taaqademy and Live Painting by 3-Peel.
Sublime Galleria introduced a unique proprietary event, Berserk in 2013. Berserk is an annual 3-day Residential Art Conference for children. Categorised under four key art verticals - theatre, dance, music and visual art, Sublime brings the best in the art industry to mentor and guide these children. The programme involves identifying/shortlisting students from the chosen city schools who will partake in a 3-day Residential Conference comprising intensive workshops supported by sessions meticulously planned for each vertical, featuring guest lectures and demonstrations by award-winning professionals apart from other endorsements and benefits.
It is widely acknowledged that much needs to be done when it comes to promoting fine art in India. This awareness needs to be built from a grass root level where children interested in art can be nurtured and guided through its basics and other nuances. This common belief has resulted in the creation of 'Berserk', conceptualised and created by Sublime Galleria to benefit talented children in the city.
