Utsha Mentorship program intends to create an effective conversation between internationally acclaimed artists and the art students of Odisha. In the programme one artist will visit as Utsha resident to mentor a selected group of students and guide them in their journey of art practice. Their value addition and discussion will open new doors of possibilities in the students’ art practice. At the end of the programme any two participants will be selected by the mentor to get a personal guidance even after the programme. This guidance will provide the students a prospect to look at their art practice outside of their mundane frame, which will help them to enrich their art practice in both subjective and objective ways. Gradually this initiative will lead the young contemporary Odia artists to talk in a contemporary language to present them in national and international platforms.
