Inktober is an online drawing challenge, first coined by Jake Parker, a prominent comic book artist.
In 2009, for developing his drawing skills, Jake started drawing everyday with ink and brush. The goal was to make 31 drawings on 31 days of October. 'Inktober' is wordplay for 'ink' and 'October.'
Cartoon People is a group of Bangladeshi cartoonists and visual storytellers who have been working actively with cartoons, comics, and animation since 2016. They have arranged workshops and created tutorials for its members, so that they can develop their own skills. As the goals aligned, Cartoon People have been arranging 'Inktober Bangladesh — 2018' exhibition in collaboration with the EMK Centre.

Joloj is an endeavour by artists Al-Akhir Sarker, Biplob Chakroborty, Golam Moshiur Rahman Choudhury, Md Azmal Uddin, Sadek Ahmed, and Shaymal Biswas.
The fourth edition of 'Joloj' is continuation of a series of exhibitions with the central theme, 'the water around us.'
Water is ever-present in Bangladesh and watercolour is one of the most expressive medium to capture the beauty of riverine Bangladesh. Their paintings show the struggles of life, the agony of human existence, as well as our profound attachment with Mother Nature. There are paintings on other themes as well, some personal to the extent of sharing the artists' moments of melancholia, or paradoxical euphoria.

EXCERPTS | SOLO EXHIBITION BY ALIA KAMAL
Date: 10 November – 24 November
Time: 11AM- 10PM
Venue: Jatra Biroti, 60 Kemal Ataturk Avenue, Banani
For the first time the exhibition, Excerpts, will feature the painter's oil paintings, and oils alone. The works portray fragments of one's entire life — intimate moments, perhaps in the mundane or perhaps in silent crises. Inspired from conversations, thoughts and lived experiences, the artist attempts in various frames to make the 'personal' into 'universal.' Kamal's work has previously been shown at Dhaka Arts Centre, TEDxDhaka, Longitude Latitude 6, Mad Koffee 2.0, and the Milkshake Collective.
