Excited students & parents, from this year’s edition as well as last year’s inaugural edition of Berserk, flocked to UB City to take part in the evening’s celebrations. Berserk is still a relatively new concept and it was heartening to see such whole-hearted support and encouragement for it from everyone present.
The Residential Art Conference for Berserk 2014 took place at ECC, Whitefield from 24th-27th August, 2014. To enable participation of a larger number of talented children, this year’s event was designed to include 110 children overall across the 4 verticals. This edition saw 2,000 students from 50 leading schools in Bangalore audition to take part in the conference. The tremendous success of the inaugural edition of Berserk was reinforced by the fact that parents travelled with their children all the way from Delhi, Chennai & Chikmagalur to participate in the Open Auditions this time around.
Sublime Galleria introduced a unique proprietary event, Berserk in 2013. Berserk is an annual 3-day Residential Art Conference for children. Categorised under four key art verticals – Theatre, Dance, Music & Visual Art, Sublime brings the best in the art industry to mentor & guide these children. The programme involves identifying/shortlisting students from the chosen city schools who will partake in a 3-day Residential Conference comprising intensive workshops supported by sessions meticulously planned for each vertical, featuring guest lecturers & demonstrations by award-winning professionals apart from other endorsements & benefits.
It is widely acknowledged that much needs to be done when it comes to promoting fine art in India. This awareness needs to be built from a grass root level where children interested in art can be nurtured & guided through its basics & other nuances. This common belief has resulted in the creation of ‘Berserk’, conceptualised & created by Sublime Galleria to benefit talented children in the city.
