Under Kali-Kalisu, IFA's arts-based teacher training initiative organised in collaboration with the Goethe Institut/ Max Mueller Bhavan, Bangalore, we held three regional conferences in Bidar, Dharwad and Mysore in 2011. The conferences focused on the consolidation and interpretation of experiences shared by participants of IFA's Kali-Kalisu workshops which were organised in 2009 and 2010. This film was shot during the Bidar regional conference.
“Kali-Kalisu” in Kannada means “learn and teach,” intended as an exhortation to teachers everywhere to remember that education is a lifelong experience, that learning and teaching happen side by side, and that the joy of learning stems from the joy of teaching. This initiative is a part of IFA's Arts Education programme which seeks to enhance the role of the arts in education, while also strengthening education in the arts. It is an arts-based teacher training programme for government school teachers across the length and breadth of Karnataka. As part of this initiative over 400 teachers, from primary and high school levels, were exposed to the best of the arts by facilitators who themselves are artists and educators through music, dance, theatre, visual art and puppetry workshops that were held between May 2009 and October 2009.
