Serendipity Arts Trust on Wednesday announced the first edition of ‘Serendipity Arts Festival’ to be held in Goa. Serendipity Arts Festival will be the first of its kind in India to celebrate the diversity in art with a special focus on performing, visual, and culinary arts. The Festival aims to bind and promote art and culture that is unique to the various geographies in the sub-continent, on a single collaborative platform.
The incredibly diverse culture and rich history of Goa will provide the perfect backdrop for the grandest art affair of the year. The programming will be dispersed across a mix of indoor and outdoor locations along Panaji’s waterfront. Audiences will get to engage with the arts in beautiful, carefully designed and often unconventional settings. Most venues will be within walking distance of each other and the Festival will provide transit/ shuttle options. The event is expected to attract artists, performers, writers, journalists, academics, collectors, enthusiasts and others engaged with the arts community, both within and outside the country to the sunny state of Goa for the cause of art.
Speaking at the announcement press conference, Sunil Kant Munjal, Chairman, Hero Corporate Service Pvt. Limited, said, “The Serendipity Arts Festival at Goa is an interdisciplinary curated arts festival, designed to challenge boundaries and redefine the formats of presentation and engagement. It is a unique social responsibility project, which will promote education, spread awareness, empower artists, and reassert value in the arts. The festival will also promote arts education and revive interdisciplinary arts through collaborations between organisations, artists and audiences. It aims to bring back patronage of the arts by initiating engagement; the idea is to develop newer ways of looking at art and culture.”
