CreativeYatra is on its way to connect a wider community of artists and art lovers from the non-mainstream arena. The 2nd milestone that Creative Yatra has simultaneously achieved, is grabbing an international reach. Yes, CY is going to Spain, from Ahmedabad to Valladolid, CY is going to enrich it’s community with an exclusive coverage on Spanish art, culture, ethnicity, traditions, practices and everything that defines them and us as a community. From Museums to food, from literary to contemporary, from society to wilderness, get ready to arouse your Christopher Columbus within, and join the CY excursion of exploration to Spain.
If we technically explain the milestone, Mindful Venture (MV), the holding firm of Creative Yatra (CY) is an active member in the Ahmedabad Heritage Venture Lab (AHVL). AHVL is a joint initiative of Centre For Heritage Management and Venture Studio, both of which are institutes of Ahmedabad University. In a project funded by European Union (EU), AHVL fellows along with academicians from Ahmedabad University and Administrators from Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation are invited on a study trip to Valladolid, Sapin. The 10 member delegate will interact with academicians of University of Valladolid, will meet the City Council members and also meet culture entrepreneurs from the Spanish City. The broad objective of AHVL is to foster the growth of culture and heritage enterprises through mentorship and network linkages.
The delegation is headed by Mr. Gilbert Nazareth from CHM. The other members of the delegation include Mr. Ravin Sanghvi, Deputy Head of Delegation (Head Coach, Venture Studio), Mr. Shahul Amin (Sr. Lecturer, CHM), Mr. Dilip Gor (Dy. Municipal Commisioner, Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation), Ms. Bhartiben Patel (Asst. City Engineer, Heritage Department, AMC), Mr. Rajdeep Routh (Director Sustain-ably, AHVL Fellow), Ms. Bhavna Ramrakhiani (Founder Trustee – Sarkhej Roza Crafts & Women’s Collective, AHVL Fellow), Mr. Vijaykumar Pandya (Project Assistant, City Heritage Centre), Mr. Shahid Ansari (Owner, Hunar Crafts, AHVL Fellow) and Mihir Gajrawala (Co-Founder, CreativeYatra.com).
As part of the delegate, Co-Founder and Chief Content Curator of CreativeYatra.com, Mihir Gajrawala shall be exploring possibilities of taking CY to Europe. While he is exploring the museums and heritage of Valladolid, we shall back it up with interesting features and snippets on fascinating Spanish art and culture.
