DC Books starts its cultural centre in Kazhakkoottam

Thiruvananthapuram: The Dominic Chacko (DC) Kizhakemuri Foundation and DC Books have started a cultural centre dedicated to the promotion of art, design, literature, and cinema in Kazhakkoottam, in Kerala’s capital city. Named DC Kalamandir, the cultural centre is built in connection with the celebration of their golden jubilee year.

The space, designed by conservation architect Eugene Pandala, represents a fusion of earthiness and sophistication, emphasising heritage and sustainability.

The cultural centre houses a cinema production studio, an art gallery, audio studios for dubbing and sound recording, a museum focused on publishing, a film theatre, and a library. These spaces will be a hub for hosting workshops, symposiums, and enriching community experiences.

While the DC Foundation’s Kerala Literature Festival (KLF) has earned recognition as Asia's Largest Literature Festival, the DC Kalamandir represents a new cultural sphere that will host a range of extended formats, including workshops, writer's residencies, symposiums, literary meets, and art exhibitions.

The centre's mission is to explore and showcase diverse cultural flavours through research, innovation, and international collaborations.

The inaugural event at DC Kalamandir held recently featured prominent personalities from various fields, including Prem Kumar, Vice Chairman, Kerala State Chalachitra Academy, poet Alankode Leelakrishnan, Eugene Pandala, creator and designer of DC Kalamandir, Bhagyalakshmi, artist, Dr. N Ramachandran, Dean, DCSMAT Institutions, Dr. Jayasankar Prasad, Director, DCSMAT Trivandrum and Ravi Deecee, Publisher, DC Books.
