New Delhi, Sep 6: In a harmonious convergence of artistic creativity and environmental consciousness, the "Art for Climate Action" summit has captivated both hearts and minds. Set against the backdrop of the National Crafts Museum & Hastakala Academy in Pragati Maidan, this groundbreaking event is a testament to the power of sustainable art.
As the brushstrokes of innovation intertwine with the urgency of climate action, renowned artists from diverse corners of the nation are currently utilizing their boundless talents to craft a compelling narrative on environmental stewardship. Through reimagined canvases, recycled sculptures, and upcycled installations, these visionaries will inspire a renaissance of eco-consciousness in the world of art. Their creations, a haunting tableau of our world in peril, reverberate as an eloquent reminder, an unspoken plea for the emergence of a sustainable era.
The summit is being organized by the ‘Organization for Development and Integration of Art and Artist’ (O.D.I.A.A.), an apex body of artists with robust support from the Union Ministry of Textiles and in collaboration with The National Craft Museum & Hastakala Academy.

Remarkably, in the summit, participating artists embody this principle by embracing sustainable mediums such as ephemeral art, land art, and upcycled art, reflecting a shift towards environmentally friendly creativity. In each brushstroke and intricate creation, a metamorphosis transpires—a metamorphosis heralding an epoch where art harmoniously unites with environmental consciousness.” It is an honour to be here to felicitate our hard working young artists,” said Kshitish Chandra Das, Secretary, ‘Organization for Development and Integration of Art and Artist’ (O.D.I.A.A.)
