An encounter with rickshaw art is impossible to avoid while roaming around the streets of Bangladesh. Purely intended for research and documentation, Rickshaw Art Archive reminisces this encounter and traverses the ever-changing milieus of Bangladesh.
2 years of research throughout my MA program, 1 month of planning, and 3 weeks of web development — the archival project is finally live! Interestingly, I got to finish this project after my graduation as I needed to understand this art practice with my heart and soul with guidance from my professors.
Although this archive will need to grow to reach its fullest potential, now that the platform is ready, there’s no stopping. Thanks to contributors from all around the world, we have now nearly 90 unique contributions, along with many others waiting to be reviewed and indexed.
