Alliance Française de Dhaka, Goethe-Institut and Urban Study Group (USG) are presenting Illuminating Puran Dhaka – Heritage in Limelight, highlighting the endangered cultural heritage of Puran Dhaka through video and light installations by French artist Christophe Bruyas and German artist Philipp Geist.

In addition to the vespertine illumination, an exhibition showcasing the rich cultural heritage of Puran Dhaka is available and a saxophone and flute recital as well as a dance performance by performing artists are awaiting the audience.

The project aims at raising awareness on the cultural values of the heritage buildings in the country. Ideally, it is a first step towards initiating yearly ‘Heritage Open Days’ in Bangladesh in the near future.
