About:

Nila Yatra 2019 is hosted by Travellers’ University and Vayali Folklore Group in the spirit of exploring the various roles a river plays in nurturing life forms.

Travellers’ University has an aim to provide a transformative experience, enabling people to uncover a range of learning opportunities from the real world to young minds through travel.

Vayali Folklore Group has a mission to preserve and nurture traditions along the banks of the Bharathapuzha in Kerala.

Every river is an ecosystem in itself and along with the varied biodiversity, it has rich stories of culture and history to tell. It’s time for us to celebrate that!

Often, the postmodern lens allows us to view the rivers just as a source of water and fish stock or a source of energy.

We as well tend to forget that the existence of life is dependent on the river. That humans, both as individuals and communities are dependent on the river.

The focus is to explore the human-river interconnectedness through Nila Yatra in Thrissur from August 11 to 17, 2019.

River Nila or Bharathappuzha as it is commonly known is the second-longest river that flows through Kerala and can be considered the lifeline of Kerala’s cultural map.

Objectives:
  • explore the plural aspects of the river
  • livelihoods that the river supports
  • the local folk arts, dance, and music associated
  • to make some hands-on bamboo and kuruthola craft and
  • to reestablish one’s connection with nature.
Monetary Contribution:

The contribution for participation is on a sliding-scale of Rs. 12,000/- to Rs. 15,000/-. It means that Rs. 12,000/- covers the food, travel, accommodation and basic facilitation cost during the 7 days of yatra and contribution to the artisans.

Any contribution above this amount supports the curation and documentation of the knowledge assimilated during the yatra.
