All the way from Goa, the famous Serendipity Arts Festival is now coming to Delhi. What one can expect there: crafts and photography exhibitions, design installations, dance performances, storytelling sessions and a theatre performance. It will be held from April 6-16 at Bikaner House. To name some things that one can see there: ‘Indian Crafts: Traditions and Expressions’, an exhibition by Manjari Nirula and Jyotindra Jain; ‘The Express/Aspire’ project with the Auxilium High School, Goa; Sanjeev Bhargava’s project ‘Sandhi’ focusses around the hierarchies that exist between a classical musician and dancer and more. Visitors can buy the handicrafts, artworks and photographs and all the proceeds will go the Serendipity Arts Trust for the support of artisan communities.
Talking about the festival, Sunil Munjal, the founder patron of Serendipity Arts Trust says, “Serendipity Arts Festival is a cultural experiment that hopes to, over time, affect the way Indians interact with art on a daily basis by addressing issues such as arts education, patronage culture, interdisciplinary discourse, and accessibility of the arts.”
Smriti Rajgarhia, Director of Serendipity Arts Trust, says, “We hope that the mix of projects will bring people from different genres to engage with the other creating more awareness and interaction. This environment, we hope, will expose practitioners and audiences to newer forms of art and generate interest in the field.”
