Minister for Kannada and Culture Umashree releases logo of Mysuru District Amateur Theatre Activists Forum; promises support for theatre activities

The long-pending demand of Mysuru theatre activists for Kiru Rangamandira (mini theatre) will soon be realised with 90 percent of works already completed. The work on acoustics were pending and it would be inaugurated soon, said Minister for Kannada and Culture Umashree.

Reacting to the theatre artistes’ demand for rehearsal halls or space at the Rangayana premises, Umashree said: “I have instructed the assistant director to inspect and allot suitable place within the campus and he would do the needful.”

Inaugurating the Mysuru District Amateur Theatre Activists Forum at Vanaranga on Tuesday, Umashree said: “In a bid to adopt e-governance, the Department of Kannada and Culture has achieved paperless administration where no other government department has transformed into complete digitalisation of documents and online services.”

“My department has effectively utilised the technology to spread the rich culture of Karnataka. The government has commitment to uplift the state culture and facilitate theatre activities. Rs 3 crore has been granted in the last budget and we have extended theatre activities across the state. We have also planned to release an additional Rs 50 lakh to promote culture.”

“We have brought transparency to the department. Online payment system has been adopted to eliminate the influence of middlemen between artists and the department,” she said.

Former President of Karnataka Nataka Academy Srinivas G Kappanna, Senior theatre personality N Rathna, H S Umesh, Rangayana Director H Janaradhan, President of Mysuru District Amateur Theatre activists Forum Suresh Babu and others were present.
