CAlcutta Cacophony turns five.
In contemporary times, when the citizens of the city drain themselves physically, and emotionally, in the busy, metropolitan work culture, there is no time to look back and find appeasement in the jigsaw puzzle of the concrete buildings. Here is where we, at Calcutta Cacophony come in.
Calcutta Cacophony had humble roots when it first came to being in 2014. Just another aspiring handle on Instagram, we started with reposting photos on the profile, trying to promote city-based photographers who needed a platform.
Soon enough, our vision made its way to Facebook. And, we found a new team, comprising of a dedicated, young, enthusiastic crowd, nurtured in various fields, by the city itself. Calcutta Cacophony, on Facebook went on to become one of the biggest mixed media art forums on Facebook of Calcutta, garnering both critical and popular acclaim.
The ever-growing youth brigade here has taken the city’s streets by storm in order to find urban conciliation. Relentless walks, relentless searches far and wide, through and across the city, these youngsters here have discovered a treasure trove: Calcutta; and its bare soul.
Calcutta Cacophony, while continuing to be a platform for aspiring artistes both virtually, and physically, has stepped into the realms of digital marketing, product publicity, and event management with great gusto, apart from newer ventures including lifestyle blogging, and media handling. And every day, with the support of each and every one of its followers, it takes bold steps in all leading aspects of media. But above all, we strive to present and capture the soul of the city, that we call Calcutta, for the populace and beyond. Calcutta is an emotion; and we promise to protect and nurture it.
