A two-day art camp was held at a distant hilly village close to Bangladesh and India border as children from ethnic communities got an opportunity to put their thoughts into sketches. 

Held on January January 24-26, 60 youths, belonging to different ethnic communities, took part in the event, said a press release issued on Tuesday.

Deprived of basic amenities, youths in this remote village also showed renewed zeal as the event offered an opportunity for enjoyment through painting, an exception to their day-to-day life. 

Their paintings also offered a glimpse into their lifestyles. 

Prominent public figure Morshed Mishu mentored the children at the art camp. Aside from being a talented artist, he is also known for his involvement in working with the underprivileged. Artist Rippi Bangla also joined the cause by instructing and assisting the students in making their artwork.

Founder of Lightshore Sultana Razia said Garo and Hajong children are highly interested in drawing. “Our target for organizing this art camp was to give a beautiful and memorable experience to these forgotten kids and to display their artwork at an exhibition so their diverse life and culture and relentless hardship of life can be presented to the people of Bangladesh and the rest of the world.”

Lightshore Foundation, in association with press partner The Business Standard, online partner the Daily Ittefaq, strategic partner JCI Founders, TV partner Somoy TV, documentary partner beetoqs, radio partner Radio Capital FM 94.8, photography partner La Evento and logistics partner Swapno '71, and Images Group, held the event.
