SPIC MACAY – ISC 2017

DAY 1

“If art is to nourish the roots of our culture, society must set the artist
free to follow his vision wherever it takes him.”
–John F. Kennedy, former American President

Delhi Public school, Bangalore North was the venue for the prestigious SPIC-MACAY First International School Convention 2017. SPIC MACAY (Society for the Promotion of Indian Classical Music And Culture Amongst Youth) is a non-political, nationwide, voluntary movement which organises programmes of classical music and dance, folk arts, crafts, yoga, classic cinema screenings, heritage walks, etc. in school and college campuses to make students aware of the rich heritage of India.

Renowned artists across the country started arriving at Delhi Public school, Bangalore North from 23 December’17 onwards and the whole campus was charged with warmth and excitement to receive these maestros from various fields. Keremane Shivarama Hegde, who is the first Yakshagana artist to receive the Rashtrapathi Award, set the tone for the day with his Yakshagana performance enthralling the audience to the core. Yakshagana is a traditional theatre form that combines dance, music, dialogue, costume, make-up, and stage techniques with a unique style and form.

After their sathvik lunch all the renowned artists were brought to the main venue – Auditorium 1 escorted by Hulivesha led by Shri Harsha Kumar and Veeragasse by Shri Rajappa to attend the orientation organised by Prof. Kiran Seth, the founder of SPIC-MACAY. Later the participants explored the School escorted by the school volunteers, which would be their Gurukul for next seven days.

Another feature of this convention that captured the attention of every viewer was the way the venues for various intensives were arranged. They were decked up with the artworks and artefacts pertaining to the theme of the intensives. The intensive is a humble effort to celebrate our composite heritage and it is a week-long season of Classical Music, Classical Dances, Folk Music, Folk Dances, Arts and Crafts, Cinema, Literature, Yoga and many other things of strong cultural values.

Stalls put up by the Department of Social Science portrayed the true taste of India. ‘Sabarmati Ashram’ show-cased everything that is Gandhian, “Halli Mane” provided us with the homeliness of rustic life and ‘Dharohar’ exhibited everything from sandals to silk that is Indian.
