JD Centre of Art (JDCA) is a non-governmental, non-commercial Art Centre that is being constructed in Bhubaneswar, Odisha. Jatin Das, the founder, has donated a large collection of artefacts, crafts, contemporary artwork and books on art. Designed by the renowned architect Balakrishna V Doshi, JDCA is a member of ICOM, International Council of Museums, the world’s largest museum network and a member of the Asia-Europe Museums Network.
The JD Centre of Art will blur the lines, between arts and crafts, between artists and craftsperson, between creators and audiences and between adults and children. The Centre will bring folk, tribal, traditional, and contemporary art, all under one roof. As a 'living' space, it will bring the art and craft communities closer to the general public.
Its current activities include a monthly Meet the Artist Program and a biennial Film Festival on Art and Artists. They have continued toeducate, inspire, and sensitise artists, art lovers and the public.
Come join us in this initiative by becoming a 'Friend of JDCA’.
