Tranquebar Craft Resource Centre, TCRC started the year on a high note with a Republic Day celebration, open to all the residents of Tranquebar. The goal behind this event, held on the 26th January 2010, was to provide a platform for local artisans working in collaboration with TCRC to sell their products, and to bring the diverse communities of Tranquebar together to participate in a common activity.
There were various stalls in colourful tents selling TCRC artisans’ products, as well as excellent food stalls providing local cuisine. Cultural performances, bullock cart rides and craft demonstrations made for an exciting, fun-packed day.
The artisans gratefully appreciated the local exposure given to their products, and they look forward to more festivities in the future.
