The Chitpur Art Trail
Chitpur Road is one of Kolkata's oldest roads and home to diverse communities, unique craft traditions and bustling markets. The Chitpur Craft Collective, a group of local craftspeople, as well as artists and designers, have come together to curate an Art Trail. The trail meanders through the lanes and bylanes, studios, shops and heritage buildings of this historic neighbourhood. Meet us at any time from 2:00 pm to 8:00 pm, at Ramesh Dutta Street and we will guide you, or start the trail yourself using our specially curated mobile tour. Explore the many hidden gems of this locality, and experience artworks and installations that highlight the beauty inherent in Chitpur's everyday hustle and bustle.
