WITH festivals being culturally regular in Nagaland, the flow in the number of festivals entertaining to music is constant. However on Monday a mix of promising diverse and popular talent from across the state experimented with their talents at the ongoing Magnum Opus 2016 at Stone Garden, North East Zone Cultural Centre (NEZCC) Dimapur.
The second edition of Magnum Opus 2016 organised by Act Of Kindness (AOK) in collaboration with NEZCC at the Stone Garden got underway on Monday October 24 and will conclude on October 25, 2016. The event is mainly to commemorate International Artist Day.
Lenti the founder of AOK expressing ‘Art to be a form of expression’ said the two day event is to encourage the entire local artistes by giving them freedom to experiment and grow together without fear under one platform.
We live in a society where we are told what to do, never asking what we truly want. But having crossed a milestone where we can see our generation breaking the chain, Magnum Opus 2016 gives space to artistes where they are given space with freedom to experiment and grow together without fear. And this freedom of expression will bring a change in the society, a change that comes from within conveyed Lenti.
The vision of AOK is to bless the city which can be achieved by honouring our people by giving space to all the varied artistes where one can learn from each other. They also dream of increasing the chances of local artistes o be recognised and Magnum Opus strives to uphold this vision in the coming years.
And as this multi-faceted event brings all artistes together, it will demonstrate how the youth of Nagaland are creative, engaging, and genuine with their own passion.
As many as 100 artistes participated on the first day of the event that included painters, photographers, poets, musicians and dancers.
