ART lovers, here’s news for you. Jaipur Kala Chaupal is a premier art festival to be held annually in Jaipur, India. It is the result of artistic vision of its founders, Ms. Premila Singh, Ms. Leenika Jacob and the Diggi siblings Rudra and Raghav.

Jaipur Kala Chaupal is a unique platform designed to integrate traditional arts of India with contemporary art forms that exist internationally. The core purpose of the festival is to align traditional arts/artists in India and give them continuity in the contemporary world. It has been carefully conceived to provide a unique opportunity to the established as well as emerging artists from various countries to explore the soul of art in India and be a catalyst for newer and original collaborative artistic expressions.

Keeping close to the central idea of confluence, collaboration and conversations, the 14-day event has been divided into two parts. The event opens on 20 October with the arrival of artists at the Diggi Palace for a ten-day residency project, where artists from the world over will collaborate with traditional Indian artists to co-create art work based on “Water” as a theme.

The residency will be followed by an exhibition of the art produced over the 10 days, at the Jawahar Kala Kendra between 1-3 November.
