The National Institute of Design Madhya Pradesh (NID MP) stands as a shining beacon of creativity and innovation in the heart of India. With its unwavering commitment to nurturing artistic talents and fostering design excellence, this institution has emerged as a true gem in the realm of design education. NID MP organizes Madhya Pradesh Design Utsav (MPDU) as the flagship event of the organization annually. This year, on 5th September 2023 Shri Sanjay Kumar Shukla, Principal Secretary, Department of Industrial Policy & Investment Promotion, Govt. of Madhya Pradesh unveiled the poster of the Madhya Pradesh Design Utsav (MPDU). MPDU is a spectacular celebration of creativity and craftsmanship, where the world of design is not only propagated but also deeply rooted in the local culture.
This grand festival serves as a vibrant platform where talented artisans from Madhya Pradesh find the support and recognition they rightfully deserve. By inviting students and individuals from all corners of Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh Design Utsav creates a melting pot of ideas, cultures, and design sensibilities. It is an extraordinary showcase of the fusion between tradition and innovation, where the intricate craftsmanship of local artisans meets the innovative ideas of budding designers. The theme for MPDU 2023 is ‘Mudra’, which embodies the art of communication through the eloquence of hands. It is a captivating celebration of the myriad forms of non-verbal expression that our hands can convey. In the intricate dance of human connection, hands emerge as the silent poets of expression. With a graceful touch, they paint the canvas of emotions, tracing the delicate contours of empathy and understanding. In their gentle caress, they whisper secrets and convey solace, bridging the chasm between hearts with an eloquence that words alone can seldom muster. These vessels of connection, with fingers that weave stories and palms that cradle dreams, remind us that in the symphony of human interaction, it is often the touch of a hand that composes verses of connection, harmonizing souls in a language universal and profound.
