At CRACK Trust we believe that Art is a complex process and it could not be separated from life and ways of living. We think that every form of art has inter-relation and it is necessary to develop vigorous inter linkages between every field of culture to create a favorable environment for the progress of artistic practices. In this light, apart from visual artists, CRACK also engages creative people from various disciplines, including but not limited to theatre activists, photographers, film makers, musicians, psychologists, singers, poets, writers, journalists, actors, anthropologist, folklorists, historians, art critics and so on.
1. CRACK International Art Camp( CIAC) focuses on promoting young artists & thinkers by giving them space & momentum for flourishing their talent on an international basis.
2. CIAC is building a potential cross-cultural relationship keeping away from the conventional corporate culture.
3. Exchange of thoughts, ideas, concepts, & beliefs will accelerate interestingly through CIAC.
4. CIAC facilitates the participants coming from across the world with the philosophical basis to think independently out of basket.
5. Telescoping scope for practicing Art & Culture across the border. Involvement with the multi-cultural participants will definitely click fresh, positive and new ideas to anyone related to this art camp.
6. Sharing and caring for cross-cultural art will aim at the establishment of an eco-friendly platform. A way out from the monotonous urban life, spending some days in the lap of nature and catching up with the beats of pastoral Bengali folks are exactly what every artist might be thirsting for!
7. Brain-refreshing rather than brainstorming – the purpose of the camp is to provide the participants with a sound environment to relax their minds and share their views and insights about art works with each other.
