ACRES FOR AUROVILLE, in association with UNITY PAVILION and AUROVILLE ART SERVICE is happy to invite you to ART FOR LAND’s 2022 Exhibition & Land Fundraiser

Now in our 7th year, AFL is an important annual support for needed land purchase, and a recognized showcase for Auroville’s artistic creativity. We thank all the artists who have donated their works and all the event organizers for their energy – we appreciate your inspiring solidarity !

This year again, the walls, halls and tables of the Unity Pavilion are filled with artworks of many media for sale to raise funds for the land, all generously donated by Auroville, Ashram and friend artists from India and around the world. 

The Exhibition’s artworks can be seen and purchased at the Unity Pavilion, or via the online gallery at our dedicated website artforland.in which provides purchase, donation and events information.

This week’s AFL 2022 events include :

twice-daily movie screenings ; a puppet show ; Sound bath ; and three special events: the presentation of Anandi’s new book of poetry and photos « Matrimandir – The Privilege », accompanied by a film on the building of the Matrimandir presented and commented on by B; Loretta’s annual inspiring talk on Sri Aurobindo’s Yoga Sadhana ;  and the four magnificent meditative films on Savitri : « Savitri Marg Darshan »  from Know Your Rhythm, presented by Arnab, with one of the texts read by our dear Shraddhavan. There are peace meditations every evening, and the special event « Peace & Unity » by Nirakar. On the auspicious day of Monday, August 15th, Prime Minister Modi’s talk on Sri Aurobindo’s Five Dreams will be live-streamed from the Unity Pavilion. 

Proceeds from art sales, books, cards and events all go for land purchase via the Acres for Auroville land campaign, Art for Land’s initiator.
