Heritage Party: Let’s paint the KOTE red
Let’s paint the KOTE red!
On the night of Friday July 24th 2015, the old fort of Bengaluru, the KOTE, will come alive – and you are warmly invited to be a part of this!
Bangalore is a modern and vibrant city that moves with great pace and rapid strides into the future. But it also has a long history and a grand past. The KOTE is the place where the city once took form. The fort played a crucial role in the history of city, and it is the core of its identity as a cosmopolitan metropolis – but today only few parts of it are still visible, by which it is hard to measure its former extension.
To re-visualize the KOTE’s significance, we will mark the borders of the old fort in RED on Friday night and awaken it for this one moment in time. And we are asking for your help – please join!
Please come DRESSED IN RED or wearing a PIECE OF RED, if possible. Bring A TORCH, FLASHLIGHT or CANDLE. If you have RED PAINT or RED ROPE at hand, bring this, too. And most important: Bring your friends IN RED!
Together we will celebrate, “paint the town red”, and paint the KOTE red. As special guests and “ghosts of the past”, actors and artistes will be present to bring the fort alive together with you.
We will gather at 11 pm in front of the existing fort entrance on the road opposite the City Market. Please be prepared to stay until 2 am.
The event “Let’s paint the KOTE red!” is organised by the bangaloREsidency of Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan in cooperation with MOD-Institute and Suchitra Film Society and it is kindly supported by B.PAC. Permission to conduct this event was granted by Administrator BBMP, TM Vijay Bhaskar.
