2007-04-17 | Artist Krishna Luchoomun launces pARTage AIR newsletter

pARTage is a newsletter about the local artscene in Mauritius and abroad with a special focus on atist in residence opportunities. pARTage, newsletter and residence program is set up Krishna Luchoomun, Mauritian artist and former Thami Mnyele artist in resident. " Krishna thought of pARTage in the form of an idea for a potential workshop during his residency at the Thami-mn-yele Foundation in the Netherlands in 2001. Having there had a feel of the energy and momentum that epitomizes such workshops, Luchoomun started seriously considering setting up something of a similar nature in Mauritius. He was positively encouraged when Pauline Burman, director of the Thami-mn-yele Foundation enabled a meeting with Robert Lauder, director of the Triangle Arts Trust of London. This turned out to be quite a lucrative and compelling initial step towards the realisation of Luchoomunís dream. His enthusiasm and drive for this project was met accordingly and Lauder helped by making accessible information on how to integrate the workshop through Triangle Arts Trustís existing network, and by directing Luchoomun towards the right places to seek funding in order to kick start the project."
