With more performers opting to perform at newly-inaugurated the pedestrian plaza in T Nagar, the Greater Chennai Corporation is considering to set up a system to streamline the process.
He added that the discussions are under way to appoint an event manager and to create an online registration system to simplify the process. The platform has been receiving positive response from artistes across the city. Singer and song writer MS Krsna, said, “When we performed a music event at the pedestrian plaza, the kind of support we received was unexpected. Some of the spectators they met us after the show and praised our work. It felt so good to have been able to express ourselves and be appreciated for it.”
In another move to increase the number of performances at the plaza, the civic body also has plans to merge with a UNESCO initiative, in which music events are being conducted every weekend at major city parks. UNESCO had included Chennai in its creative cities project under music category in 2017 to boost culture and art.
