We got in touch with the incredibly inspiring Founder of one of the most happening Art and Poetry Communities on Instagram @artlixirpoetry, that is also present on other platforms ( if you look them up) to find out more about Artlixir. We first discovered her writing as Kulvadana at @poetryandprosebyk on instagram. Dr.Priya Dolma, the charismatic poet will be gracing us with her first book, ‘Ivory Gleam’ very soon and we can’t wait! Here’s the story of Artlixir narrated by K herself. We wish her team great success!
To quote Wikipedia, Art is a diverse range of human activities in creating visual, auditory or performing artifacts (artworks), expressing the author’s imaginative or technical skill, intended to be appreciated for their beauty or emotional power. With ARTLIXIR, we attempt to bring forth, the Elixir of Art.
The magical cure of an elixir that can preserve artistic youth in all our hearts by celebrating, and honoring, the various branches of creative activity. There is an artist in each one of us, and more often than not, we fear to realize or boost it. As an endeavor to perpetuate a comfortable and safe haven for this artist in us, ours is a humble initiative managed by a team of 13 members. It is a nonprofit organization, based on altruism and selfless support. The volunteers dedicate themselves to discover talented creatives, and encourage worthy artists on our social media platforms. We work mainly on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, but hope to reach more people and include more art forms in the near future.
Artlixir has five branches. Artlixir Poetry promotes both form and free verse poetry. We host challenges involving different traditional forms, as well as micro poetry contests. Book giveaways are conducted to support published authors.
Artlixir Fresh is a platform to notice undiscovered writers who have just begun their poetic journey. On Fresh, we provide review-based features to encourage these budding talents.
Artlixir Brush is our art palette where we share paintings, sketches, photographs and craft.
Artlixir Spoken is the spoken word hub where we share our favorites of performance art. We also have regular livestreams from Artlixir Spoken, where our members perform the pieces of those submitting to us, and also, share their own heart.
Artlixir Music is our musical studio where we feature a mix of world music. It is platform for all the rhythm lovers, vocalists, songwriters, composers, and musicians of every genre.
Team Artlixir is globally spread, and we devote time and love into making this work.
