Bangalore, India, August 04, 2014 — ‘Berserk 2014‘ – the 3-day Residential Art Conference for children is back with its 2nd edition. Launched in 2013 by Sublime Galleria, this initiative aims to motivate, inspire and facilitate children, between 8-14 years of age, to discover and pursue their artistic talents. This year Berserk is gearing up to get bigger and better with over 60 schools participating in the Auditions to be held from 5-9th August 2014, at UB City.
Berserk’s much-talked about inaugural edition held last year saw 3000 students from 15 schools audition to take part in the conference. 60 students were eventually selected by mentors from Jagriti, Lourd Vijay Dance Studio, Taaqademy & 3peel. They spent an exciting three days engaging and interacting with the award-winning mentors, imbibing invaluable knowledge and skills.
“It gives me immense pleasure to present the 2nd edition of this unique event. Inspired and motivated by the excellent response received by our debut event last year, I am looking forward to an even more overwhelming response this year. It is a pleasure to see the excitement of the children as they gear up to audition for the various art forms that interest them among Music, Dance, Theatre & Visual Art. I encourage more and more parents to bring their children to be a part of Berserk 2014”, says Uzma Irfan – Founder, Sublime Galleria and Conceptualizer & Organizer – ‘Berserk’.

Sublime Galleria introduced a unique proprietary event, Berserk in 2013. Berserk is an annual 3-day Residential Art Conference for children. Categorized under the four key art verticals – Theatre, Dance, Music & Visual Art, Sublime brings the best in the art industry to mentor and guide these children. The programme involves identifying/short-listing 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 lectures & demonstrations by award-winning professionals apart from other endorsements and 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 and guided through its basics and other nuances. This common belief resulted in the creation of ‘Berserk’.
