Event Series Event Series: ‘Kalasetu’ Batik silk flags

Batik Silks Exhibition

As part of the ‘This is Croydon’, The Mayor’s London Borough of Culture 2023 celebration, Subrang Arts has initiated a Batik Silk Painting visual arts project called ‘Kalasetu’ – Kala means ‘Art’; ‘Setu’ means bridge – building cultural bridges with communities through arts.

In collaboration with Kinetika, Team Subrang worked with pupils from Norbury High Girls School, Croydon to create a set of 25 silk scarves and 25 silk flags that reflect the diversity of the Indian diaspora.

Pupils researched cultural expressions like arts, crafts, music, dance, festivals, places / maps of the Indian diaspora in the borough. This research inspired the design and content of the silks and the scarves.

Visit the Stanley Arts Cafe & Coworking Space to view some of the students’ amazing work.
