Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) is hosting an array of programmes, in honour of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, throughout August. Artistes and officials of BSA started off with a Shilpajatra from Dhaka to Tungipara, Gopalganj to place wreaths at the mausoleum of Bangabandhu. As the year 2020 marks the birth centenary of the Father of the Nation, 100 children created a floral garden there. Artistes also took part in a two-day workshop, where they shared ideas and created artworks on Bangabandhu.

The National Art Gallery of BSA is showcasing a number of portraits, historic photographs and paintings of Bangabandhu in the month-long exhibition, while indigenous artists dedicated an exhibition titled Paharer Bornil Sangskriti to him. A theatre production, titled Mujib Maney Mukti, was also staged at the National Theatre Hall on August 6.
