The theme is Delhi is a place steeped in historical significance, with remnants of bygone eras scattered throughout its landscape. Generations have watched empires rise and fall, their lives echoing the constant reinvention of Delhi's social, cultural, and political spaces. The capital brims with tales of quiet victories of finding a home in the ever-shifting currents of change. The mere mention of ‘Purani Dilli’ evokes feelings of nostalgia. Transcending the physical realm. Delhi's urban imaginary encompasses the stories, myths, and symbols that people associate with the metropolis as they navigate their lives.

Involving the rich cultural heritage of art in Delhi, KMC invites you to embrace your inner artist as you conceptualize Delhi through your original artwork.
