In this regard, all venues situated in South Dhaka such as Beauty Boarding, Bulbul Academy of Fine Arts and Northbrook Hall, including its main venue Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) will be open for all from 11am to 8pm.
Moreover, Mobile exhibitions on rickshaw vans will travel all over Dhaka city and take the exhibitions from door to door. Ensuring the general public’s access has always been an important part of the festival.
