Gallerie One is the first ever centre for contemporary arts and research in Kashmir.

Featured Project:

Athwaas - Hand Shakes for Peace.

 

Athwaas (literally translates to Handshake from Kashmiri) is a project initiated and executed by Omar Hafiz, a development practitioner from Kashmir. The project aims to engage young Indian artists  and promote peace and solidarity through art. 

Athwaas was organised independently. Gallerie One features this project as a part of our online art exhibition - To Art is to Resist - showcasing artworks produced by artists in response to ongoing crisis in Kashmir.

 

“We are artists, we come from different cultures, different states ,different religions but with one common thing: that is we are humans; We don’t know any other language of expressing; Our solidarity with people of Kashmir. So here we paint our thoughts in solidarity with people of Kashmir with a hope that it will reach to them in same context as we paint it.”

"Let’s pray for peace in Kashmir.”
