Kula – A Global Gathering 2024 brings to you a very special message of co-existing for building a shared future.
Placing this theme at the centre of our work, we are delighted to present the design identity for Kula 2024 which reflects the collaborative efforts of diverse artists.
The visual identity has been developed based on the traditional practice of ‘tarpa’ dance of the ‘warli’ community where rhythm and movement create circles of strength, support, liveliness and positive energy.
Keeping up our practice of collaborative creation of the visual identity, for 2024, we are grateful to the team which includes Mr Rajendra S Chaudhari, researcher and artist who has been researching warli art for over 40 years, Chaudharinvnath a practising warli artist and art teacher, along with contemporary graphic designers Dinesh Tambe, Soham Devasar, and visual artist, Sameer Kureshi from Aliens Tattoo India mentored by Sunny Bhanushali their collective work illustrates the dynamism and verve when diverse creative minds come together, accepting their diversity and looking for commonalities.
Shout out to Eric Jason Dsouza (Iron Buzz Tattoo) for creating the Kula logo identity in 2023.
“This gathering is about showcasing cultural practices, bringing communities together for a shared future and celebrating the spirit of artistic endeavours despite the challenges. At Kula, we come together to pay respect to our traditions, ancient practices while connecting the contemporary and modern. We firmly believe in standing strong in our culture and keeping culture alive as the world goes through layers of changes.” Andre Tully, Founder & Curator – Kula Worldwide.
“Join us in this initiative where traditional meets contemporary, not where traditional competes with contemporary”
With Kula 2024, we hope that the circles of energy and positive vibes that emerge through our gathering of tribes will impart much vitality to the future sustainability and success of all our communities.
