Workshops and collective ground painting
A kolam workshop is an invitation to discover Indian culture, its mythology and the symbols of Indian iconography. It doesn’t matter whether we know how to draw; kôlam combines harmonious forms and the grammar of numbers.
It is the experience of a new space, the pleasure to touch soft or rough materials and to draw with the fingers.
The hand as a tool plays an essential role in the recognition of oneself and of the other. In a world where too often the new technologies have cast a shadow over the manual world, it is vital to preserve hand-gesture education and to create the favourable conditions for its development.
Beyond the aesthetic interest which they offer, these kôlam, structured around a centre, favour listening to the inner voice.
