Golden Sunbeams

Sunny afternoon was a perfect frame for yesterday’s inauguration of Golden Sunbeams at Matrimandir’s Boulder Garden. This was the first in the series of four, stretched over the Golden year, or Auroville 50th Anniversary, and it will be on view until 3rd of January 2018. On 1st of January , after early morning events it will be open to public again, otherwise all visitors who passes the Boulder Garden on their path to viewing point will be able to see it.
In short interview with curator of the exhibition Adil Writer we find out where the idea comes from, who is participating, and the next steps. As he says, there was an idea to showcase Auroville art outdoor in collective , which has not been done yet, and the team of Matrimandir supported the idea by proposing the Boulder Garden.
In this first edition are on display art works in different materials – from ceramic, wood, fiber glass….
and we can see works of Alexey Golubev, Henk Van Putten, Nele Martens, Priya Sundaravalli, Rkahee Kane, Sabirna Srinivas, Saraswati, Torkil Dantzer and Adil Writer.

Art for Land – Flow of Donations

In the care for land Unity Pavilion joined the action Acres for Auroville (A4A) with unique way – Art for Land, by which they connect all good wishers also with artist, thus creating a flow of donation. Here the generosity is a gesture with noble action, as Devasmita mentions in between.
Team of Acres for Auroville(A4A), and Green Acres with Mandakini, Aryadeep and Sigrid in care to secure the master plan, as envisioned by The Mother, try to raise  funds to buy missing plots.
This year Art for Land will be inaugurated on 1st of January 2018 at 4pm at Unity Pavilion, with accompanied music. Exhibition   will be on display until 15th  of February . This year there wont be an auction but just a display of already collected over 300 art works from painting, photography, sculptures and pottery.
With this action the Unity Pavilion joins the events celebrating not only the 50th anniversary of Auroville, but also plea for  Gratitude which we all feel for the land,  that gives space to uniqueness of Auroville. As Jaya says,  they still hope that to celebrate the 50th, each account in Auroville, either be personal or other,  would join the celebrations by monthly recurring small or big amount toward purchasing missing plots of the land for the Master Plan.

Growth Management for Greenbelt

The Auroville Integral Sustainability Insitute for the 4th time invited group of post graduate students of planning from Queens University, Canada to be part of learning exchange between Auroville and them.
Anna Geladi, Phillip Pirell along with Lalait came to our studio to invite us to a presentation on Growth Management Framework for Settlement in Auroville Green Belt, which would take place on Friday 15th at 4.30pm at SAIIER Conference room.
Both Anna and Phillipe found out the particularities of the space, and complexity of given topic, which requires a bit different approach to other planning in the world. Yet, the group of 12 students with their professor, managed to focus on the topic of development in green belt, and came up with suggestion, which we would hear at the presentation.
