Calcutta Instagrammers is Calcutta’s biggest and largest Instagram community, currently boasting of over 17,000 members on our Facebook group page and over 30,000 members on our Instagram channel, steadily increasing in numbers & strength as we speak. To give you a general idea of the phenomenal numbers we deal with- till date, we have had an incredible 1.4 Lakh+ posts with the official hashtag #ig_Calcutta on the Instagram alone- by far the highest ever for any community based feature account in Calcutta. On our Facebook group, we have posts coming in 24*7, 7 days a week.
Team Calcutta Instagrammers has always strived to offer the city with the best of experiences whenever given the chance. Starting from our flagship project, Fanushi- Sky Lantern Festival to promote green Diwali to our most recently planned and yet to be presented initiative, Calcutta Art Confluence.
The concept behind “Fujifilm presents Calcutta Art Confluence 2017” stands in supporting and uplifting underground artists and telling the city those untold stories of Bengal. It is an amalgamation of artists, photographers, musicians and most importantly people who are interested in learning and experiencing more in this field of interest.
Our main motive is to bring such keen people from these genres under one roof and have a celebration without any barrier or discrimination that would live in the memories and hearts of Calcuttans, forever.
The two day-long event is scheduled to take place on the 16th and 17th of this September at Art Rickshaw in Hindustan Park and will be open to the crowd, free of any kind of admission charge. Some of the renowned photographers like Soumya Shankar Ghosal, Lopamudra Talukdar, Raju Ghosh, Avik Ghosh etc., will be there at the inauguration ceremony. The evenings will be full of fun activities like live art sessions, poetry slams, art barter, etc. Furthermore, there will be an exclusive photo-booth by the event sponsor Fujifilm India that displays a whole-range of Instax cameras and a wonderful set of Calcutta themed post-cards curated by Calcutta Instagrammers and published by Rare Planet.
