‘Wandering Minds Art Vault’ inaugurated in Dimapur

Wandering Minds inaugurated its art gallery, ‘Wandering Minds Art Vault’ at Midland, Dimapur on February 10.
Speaking on the occasion after the ribbon-cutting ceremony, chief guest of the programme, president of the All Nagaland Private Schools’ Association (ANPSA), Dimapur, Dr. Andrew Ahoto Sema hoped that Wandering Minds would bring substantial development of creative skills.
He said that there should be greater flexibility in the present curriculum where there was inter-disciplinary exchange and inter-linking of subjects so that there was better exposure and utilization of one’s skills.
Dr. Andrew Ahoto Sema advocated for holistic learning and conceptualising the present education system as opposed to rote learning.
He stated that Nagaland was among the few states in India which had the highest unemployment rate at present which he attributed to the lack of proper industries, medical colleges and “lack of support towards educational institutions by the government”. He stated that in the present day in Nagaland, greed had taken over people’s needs and therefore questioned the attitude of the state government as to whether they were “developing themselves or the people whom they govern.” He lamented that though Nagaland had no dearth of skilled and talented people, there were only few individuals and organizations which truly supported those skills and talents.
He therefore hoped that the Wandering Minds would prove to be a large platform for young artists in Nagaland and help them express their unique talents and skill-sets.
It may be mentioned that Wandering Minds started as an art institute with its focus in Child Art and guiding young artists to mature in their craft.
Realizing that there was a bigger responsibility to nurture talented artists and on seeing the lack of platform for artists, it widened its horizon.
Wandering Minds Art Vault was set up to encourage fine art students to display their artworks and make profits. To encourage students to become independent in their own fields, Wandering Minds offered a cash of Rs. 1 lakh which would fund their “dream project”, a release from the media & information team, Wandering Minds informed.
