My Village My Nation
Kaliyanwala Village, Uttrakhand - India

A Blend of Art & Culture is an attempt to promote art, friendship and understanding between people of diversified culture. TellusArt works on different expressions, cultures, traditions and arts from the globe and put them together in one space, we feel that Art does not understand any limitations and boundaries. It has no rules and regulations, which belong to the Society. Everything is fair and full of expression; it just needs an exploration from the user’s thought.

My Village My Nation my village of art & heritage' is a project for villages worldwide, parallel to the other art projects, in which TellusArt works to make villages more alive, responsive, growing & eventful in respect of arts, culture, heritage and environment. TellusArt invites local artists and craftsman to work alongside the national and international artists in the village. This provides them an opportunity to share their craft with foreign artist and in return so many things to learn from them also.

"TellusArt Academy" in north part of India in a small village called Kaliyanwala. TellusArt Academy is providing education to almost 157 underprivileged students. We are proud and humbled to do a little bit that we can afford to bring a small change in their life.
Under the Art and culture center which is also being developed at Kaliyanwala an art residency for visiting artists and many other initiatives which would give them an opportunity to unleash their creative energies to create their artwork at an open natural space.

The Purpose of our project:

My village my nation is a very ambitious project undertaken by TellusArt. TellusArt believes three things to make a substantial change in the life of a particular society.

Contact - Share - Implementation

Villages are soul of every society in the world and preserve the very values of art and tradition of the country they are part of but often get neglected as far as main stream art is concern. TellusArt is trying to bridge the gap by bringing artists of international reputation to the doorsteps of the village.

Thus making villagers a chance to mingle and exchange the beauty of their culture with artists of far of lands. This mutual exchange of ideas and cultures are the first laying stones of change.

Villagers gain from this give and take of ideas and artists get the taste of typical rural life while creating and enjoying their exploration.

More importantly TellusArt encourages artists to contribute to make an ever lasting impression on the cultural and social life of the villagers.

TellusArt is committed to touch the lives of these villagers through art as in our eyes art is the most powerful medium to present our message across.

The main satisfying part of the project is to provide needy students and women of the village to construct their lives by providing them education and means to earn their living. Tellusart believes art and artists have the energy to uplift the lives of others while painting, dancing and enjoying every bit of the process.

Be the change you wish to see in the world. - Mahatma Gandhi
