National Artist Convention 201811/29/2017
National Artists’ Convention is an initiative by PNCA to underscore various issues and problems confronting the artist’s community and as a consequence adversely affecting the cultural environment of the society at large. Currents and counter currents about culture in conditions mostly hostile towards creative expression have raised many problems and solved few. One step forward two steps backwards has been the norm of cultural movement for several decades, and the trend does not seem to let up. In such conditions both the art and the artist suffer immensely. The proposed convention will invite the leading names of various forms of art to one platform to discuss threadbare cultural issues and conclude with recommendations for submission to the authorities to take necessary steps to alleviate the condition of the artists and try to remove ambiguities prevailing in various fields of arts because of certain state neglect and interest groups promoting their vested influence.
