In this year of celebrations of Guru Nanak Sahib’s 550 years of Prakash Purab (illumination day), VOYCE and SikhRI, (the Sikh Research Institute, USA), in collaboration with the National Museum, are organising a unique exhibition that tells the story of Guru Nanak Sahib, told like never before!
This exhibition, from 1-9 February 2020, presents a rich portrayal depicting the life and times of Guru Nanak Sahib and an opportunity to experience and engage with the message of 1-Ness through panel discussions, workshops, poetry and music sessions, performances by children, interactive art, dastangoi performances, themed workshops; guided tours and more. The whole approach of organizing this event, and the diversity of activities, is that there is something for everyone to reflect and engage with 1-Ness.
“Guru Nanak Sahib continues to transform innumerable lives, and the world needs to hear this extraordinary and inspiring story of the ‘global-wisdom’, the world-prophet, the lover of 1-Ness,” says Harinder Singh, Founder, SikhRi. “This exhibition showcases that story of transformation.”
Speaking of the partnership, Shri Raghvendra Singh, CEO, Development of Museums and Cultural Spaces, says that it is a privilege for the National Museum to contribute to the 1-Ness movement through this unique exhibition.
Also contributing to the 1-Ness movement, AIPL (Advance India Projects Limited) extends its support to the cause and the exhibition. Shri Daljeet Singh, Director, AIPL, says, “We are committed to the cause of becoming like Ik Oankar, and this exhibition has that fragrance.”
There is 1-Ness in the support that has come for the exhibition, including from the Sigma Group, Jassi te Preeti Chaddha Family Foundation, and others, including artist partners, 1-Ness collaborators and the enthusiastic team of volunteers, the 1-Ness ambassadors, who are the force behind the exhibition.
