The District of Art
Each of the individual categories of events — which include dance, music, theatre, visual arts, cinema, literature and food — also have their respective themes keeping the broader theme of change in mind. The cinema events, for instance, centre around the theme ‘Cinema for Change’ and will attempt to discuss questions such as whether cinema is an art, whether it should be entertaining or deliver a message and if it should allow viewers to escape to fantasy or make them realise reality.
The music events will be based on the theme ‘Changing Keys’ and include musicians playing classical and experimental genres, while the theme for food is ‘Appetite for Change’. Among the many other categories, the visual arts will explore the theme ‘Mumbai Dreams... Art for Change’, the street acts ‘Walk the Change’, literature ‘The Book of Changes’ and theatre ‘Play for Change’.
