An art workshop, organized on the banks of India's Dal Lake over the weekend provided a much needed platform for locals to showcase their artistic talents. The workshop included filmmaking, storytelling competitions, and dance and drama performances by local theater artists in the Indian-controlled northern Kashmir region.

This workshop included various programs like art exhibitions, dance performances and drama shows by local theater artists. Tourists believe that the workshop has provided a good platform for local professional and non-professional artists. During this workshop hundreds of youth took part in creative art, painting, singing, and puppetry. The participants and visitors both enjoyed the workshop and said it was a new experience.

The organizer of the workshop, Abir Gupta said that the motive of the workshop was to help people exchange their ideas and showcase their talents.

Abir Gupta, workshop organizer, said, "It is a way of bringing out your articulation. It is trying to help you open up and express yourself, which is the core idea and that is what the art and culture is all about. It is about expression. So I think the central focus is not only to create a platform but also to provide mediums, within which you can express," said Gupta.

The open-air folk theater among others activity enthralled many tourists. The Kashmir valley has a huge potential for tourism and such types of workshops are seen as helping increase tourism in the valley. Thanks to such exhibitions, the artists earned better patronage, not only at home but abroad, too.
