Terracotta Creatives organized a public art exhibition, entitled “9th Rongottor Art Exhibition,” to celebrate International Worker’s Day on May 1. The street exhibition—that was open for all—took place on the sidewalks of Dhanmondi 4/A from 4pm to 7:30pm. People from all walks of life enjoyed the art show. 

The exhibition showcased 24 photographs by six photographers and six paintings by two artists. The participating photographers were: Arshad Ron, Zia Raihan, Abu Rasel Rony, Farida Alam, Uzan Rahman, and Mrittika Kamal. The participating artists were Amitab Sarker and Shah Oboni Kabir Saki. 

The Rongottor street show aims to engage artists with local communities who are otherwise deprived of art, with a preference for rural and remote areas. With this thought in mind, Rongottor has already organized several art camps, workshops, plus art and photography exhibitions—along with other events—in different parts of Bangladesh. 

Beginning in 2012, Terracotta Creatives has been working to create a platform for creative individuals to give life to their ideas. 

The growing community is for young minds passionate about different forms of art including: photography, film-making, new media, and writing.
