KOCHI: The Academy of Magical Sciences has completed a housing project for economically disadvantaged artists. Sixteen houses have been built at Chanthavila in Kazhakoottam as part of the project titled ‘Artiste Village’, said academy’s executive director Gopinath Muthukad.

“Even though a home is one of the basic needs of any individual, a true artiste doesn’t prioritise this fundamental need and so leads his own journey in an imaginative world, thus keeping himself away from his social responsibilities,” says Muthukad.

“As an organisation working for the weaker section of our society , the family of Magic Academy has acknowledged the sacrifices made by these artistes. The core intention of this project is to provide a satisfactory life to such destitute artistes and to disseminate their exceptional talents for the coming generation without expecting anything in return,” he adds.

Houses in the village have sufficient living standards, a culturally appropriate environment and adequate safety levels. Finance Minister Thomas Isaac will inaugurate the hand-over function on October 31 at 4 pm. Devaswom Minister Kadakampally Surendran will hand over the keys to magic and circus artistes in the beneficiary list. Health Minister KK Shailaja will hand over the keys to differently-abled students.

Mayor VK Prasanth will deliver the keynote address. Actor Madhu will be the chief guest. Magic Academy’s executive director Gopinath Muthukad, directors Chandrasenan Mithrummala and Prahlad Acharya will attend.  

According to the Magic Plant, the “Artiste Village” project is designed to help street magicians and circus artistes who do not have house, land or regular income. “Homes in the “Artiste Village” homes are designed in a differently-abled friendly manner so as to provide rehabilitation for homeless differently-abled artistes. The amenities provided int he village will help in the overall development of the artiste and his or her family members, according to Muthukad.
