3. ARTS EDUCATION CONFERENCE
The 2010 Conference will recognise and celebrate synergies with worldwide thinking about Arts Education priorities. By Arts Education we mean kindling a connection to the arts for the teacher, both as an 'individual' and as an 'educator', through exposure to music, movement, theatre, visual arts and puppetry. This year’s edition aims at enumerating links between the fields of art, culture, development and education. It will remain faithful to the momentum of Kali-Kalisu, which derives from Arts Education initiatives at grassroots levels in school contexts. It will equally hope to catalyse conversations with broader Indian and international Arts Education activist communities that are engaged in the continual dialogue of global and local realities, ideas, theories and practices.Pre-registration is essential and free of charge. Forms are also available at www.indiaifa.org. You may fill out an e-form and send it to: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will confirm your participation as soon as we hear from you.

5. POETRY WITH PRAKRITI
You can view the entire schedule of the festival here.
Poetry with Prakriti is a two-week long festival of poetry held annually in Chennai to coincide with the famed Chennai music season. The festival brings together eminent and emerging poets, featuring readings to small, intimate audiences. These readings take place at several venues in the city, including colleges and cafeteria, IT parks and green public parks and spaces, and select shops and commercial establishments. The idea is to bring poetry closer to the public of Chennai.
