Workshops On Chau Dance

Rural Craft and Cultural Hubs (RCCH) is a project of the Government of West Bengal that grooms and patronizes folk artists and crafts persons at their places of origin in the state’s rural hinterland. The aim is to unleash the potential of traditional cultural assets to strengthen grassroots economy and empower marginalized communities.

We are the implementing partner of the RCCH initiative which is being undertaken by the Department of MSME&T and is supported by UNESCO. The project follows three basic steps outlined in our flagship methodology Art for Life (AFL) – capacity building, direct market linkage and exchange and collaborations.

Chau is a traditional martial mask dance performed by the indigenous communities of Chhotanagpur plateau region that includes the district of Purulia in West Bengal. It is performed on special occasions, including the harvesting season. Chau was inscribed in UNESCO’s Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2010.

We are working with the Chau dancers of Purulia since 2005 to increase their livelihood opportunities by leveraging their traditional culture as a skill. As a result, there has been a revival and rejuvenation of the art form, creation of an alternative pathway for development, and empowerment of local communities. Capacity-building is the most critical component as it boosts the creativity of young talents. Cultural exchange programs and collaborations, along with participation in international festivals, fosters individual and professional growth.

Soon after the rollout of the RCCH project, nine workshops were organized, each of 5 days’ duration, at the Nimdih Gandhi Ashram near Purulia to train 1353 Chau artists based on the Guru Shishya Parampara or Master-Disciple tradition. This helped to enhance the skills of the Chau dancers and the musicians.
