Illuminating Puran Dhaka — Heritage in Limelight
Alliance Française de Dhaka, Goethe-Institut and Urban Study Group (USG) jointly presented Illuminating Puran Dhaka – Heritage in Limelight, highlighting the endangered cultural heritage of Puran Dhaka through video and light installations by French artist Christophe Bruyas and German artist Philipp Geist on 16 and 17 October 2015 at Devi Nibash, Puran Dhaka. In addition to the vespertine illumination, an exhibition showcasing the rich cultural heritage of Puran Dhaka was also presented and a saxophone and flute recital as well as a dance performance by performing artists were organised.
This project aims at raising awareness on the cultural values of the heritage buildings in the country. Ideally, it is a first step towards initiating yearly ‘Heritage Open Days’ in Bangladesh in the near future.
