My Canvas Talk is one of the fastest-growing stage-based talk show from India. And this is the first stage-based talk show from the “City of Joy”, Kolkata. The main goal of this organization is to spread positive motivation and social awareness among the public via curating talk shows. My Canvas Talk is also the only talk show in the world to date to plant one tree for every one thousand views.
Rahul Basak and Amit Das are the co-founders of this uprising organization. But when the pandemic started the organization can not curate the talk in their traditional ways. So they came up with a unique approach to visit other states virtually. My Canvas Talk started choosing speakers from different states. But this famous duo of entrepreneurs comes up with an approach to invite only one speaker from a state, and in a very short time they invited seven great personalities from seven states, and the entire event happened via virtual way keeping the situation in the mind. The co-founders want to make the talk show a premium talk show for the speakers but an open platform for the audiences. Right now they are on youtube based but soon they are going to be available on all the major podcast platforms globally. In a very short period, more than 30 speakers were invited as guest speakers from different parts of India from Tollywood actors, national singers, rappers, entrepreneurs, social activists, theater artists, etc.
This initiative “My Canvas Talk - Virtual” this initiative also carries a social message under the pandemic time via the logo of this initiative taken by Rahul Basak and Amit Das they shared the message for the importance of social distancing. The logo was uniquely designed by the co-founders to spread awareness.
