45th founding anniv today

Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) will celebrate its 45th founding anniversary today through an elaborated programme on the academy premises in the capital’s Segun Bagicha. Beginning from 5:30pm, the programme will feature discussion, cultural events and acrobatic show. State Minister for Cultural Affairs KM Khalid will be present as chief guest at the discussion and cultural sessions of the celebrations, while BSA Director General Liaquat Ali Lucky will preside over the event.

Besides, an exhibition, based on the works of all departments and sections of BSA, will also be held at the National Art Plaza of BSA.

BSA is the principal state-sponsored national cultural centre of the country. It is the national academy of fine and performing arts. The academy was established through an act of Parliament in 1974 as a statutory organisation under the Ministry of Cultural Affairs.

To extend its reach throughout the country, the academy has set up branches in all districts. The branches arrange district-level festivals, programmes and training on various fine and performing arts. l
