Shilpakala Academy celebrates Bangabandhu’s birthday with artistic expression

BM Report:

The Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy, the nation’s premier arts institution, commemorated the 104th birth anniversary of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the Father of Bangladesh, and National Children’s Day with a day of artistic expression and performances by young Bangladeshis.

On March 17th, Academy officials and staff began the day by paying homage to Bangabandhu’s portrait at his residence in Dhanmondi.  

A central theme of the celebration was nurturing artistic talent in the country’s youth.  The Academy hosted an “ArtCamp” titled “Bangabandhu and Bangladesh” at the Jatiya Chitrashala Plaza, where 200 children participated in a creative exploration of the national hero and their homeland.  These artworks are slated for a future exhibition at the National Gallery.

The afternoon featured a discussion and cultural program at the National Theater Auditorium.  Liaquat Ali Lucky, Director General of the Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy, served as the chief guest, while Academy Secretary Salahuddin Ahmed joined as a special guest.  The program provided a platform for young Bangladeshis to showcase their talents.  Child Triasha Sarkar delivered the welcome address, followed by speeches from Tamim Ahmed Brint and Zarin Tasnim Priyanti.

The artistic showcase was a vibrant display of youthful energy.  The Academy’s children’s music group filled the auditorium with patriotic songs like “Dhanya Mujib Dhanya” and “Shon Eket Mujibur Thane.”  Young dancers from the Academy’s Shishu Nritya troupe captivated the audience with their renditions of “Ami Dhanya Hali” and “Chalo Bangladesh.”  Solo performances included a song by child singer Rabiul Islama Shanto (“Tumi Chena Pakhi, Ghom Bege Dhi”) and theatrical presentations by the People’s Little Theater child artists (“Banglar Mukh” and “Bullying”).  The program also featured duet songs, magic acts, and was co-hosted by young Bangladeshis, Mahadia Rahman Marisha and Nabid Rahman Tuyya. 

The Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy’s celebration served as a vibrant reminder of Bangabandhu’s dedication to the future of Bangladesh, and the vital role that the nation’s youth play in its artistic legacy.
