The colorful, mesmerizing folk storytelling traditions are as much yours as they are ours. There is an urgent need to protect and preserve these stories before they disappear in the sands of time.
We, at Folklogue Studios Pvt. Ltd., created Project Folklog in 2015 with an aim to bridge the chasm between the new Indian generation and their roots. India has a huge reservoir of both visual and performative storytelling forms that include unique and diverse regional flavours, which is why we felt the urgent need to save these in a time of media epidemic.
In 2019, the prestigious grant Digital Open Call from British Council India helped us take the project further, in terms of documentation and archiving. With this grant, we were able to visit four states of India, namely West Bengal, Telangana, Delhi-NCR & Uttar Pradesh, and document more than 400 stories and art forms. The documentation included artists performing their art forms in their homes, making the archive both colorful and rich by content.
Team Folk Log runs purely on passion and we need your support in our mission. For our next phase, we want you to become a part of our journey and inspire us to document more stories. Contribute to our endeavour and become a part of the Folk Log family!
