Every culture expresses their genius in different ways. But what gave art a real as well unexpected – boost, was the Heritage Festival in Fontainhas, Panjim in January 2002. Which became an instant hit and hugely popular.It made art more credible than it was before and Goans saw for the first time the creations of their homegrown products: it must have been like a cultural shock for many of them as the art work produced by some of the Goan artists was compared to art work of They streamed into the improvised galleries in thousands; something unheard in Goa before Goa has changed and the development of art is clearly visible. However it is still simmering under a cover: like a bird that is not born yet, just trying to break the eggshell. Art is still far away from being a major factor in society as it is today in Mumbai or Delhi.
