Pa. Madhavan, the artistic director of the Cooum Art Festival, said the state of our rivers reflect our society. “The Cooum is polluted because of each one of us, who don’t take ownership to keep the river clean. We are responsible for the state the river is in now,” said this artist, whose project ‘I Am Here’ focusses on creating a dialogue around the river Cooum. From January 14-17, Madhavan will be found beside the Cooum for 72 hours. In this solo performance, Madhavan will interact with people and also take them on a walk along the river, to create awareness about the ecosystem.
