Mumbai, Jan 8 (IANSlife) Recognised as the oldest street festival in the country that brings art, music, theatre, and cinema together, the 21st edition of the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival has invited people to raise funds for it through a crowdfunding platform.
Festival organiser Kala Ghoda Association, has, for the first time, invited people across the country who have been a part of the festival over its 20-year heritage to help them bring it alive.
Extending an invitation to all Mumbaikars, the initiative is a call for support to carry forward the festival”s legacy in preserving Mumbai”s cultural heritage.
After being sponsored for the past 20 years, the association now seeks to bring in the public who have enjoyed editions of the Festival as stakeholders in this annual magnum opus.
“This year, with the business climate in the country being bleak, we, as all other art initiatives in the country, are facing tough times. And that”s when the idea of looking at crowdfunding came in. Through this association with Ketto, we invite art lovers across the country to become a part of something bigger and very impactful. The festival was started for the people and it has grown with them, and, now, we wish to keep this legacy alive with their support,” Maneck Davar – Honorary Chairman of the Association said.
The Kala Ghoda Arts Festival will be held in the Kala Ghoda precinct in Mumbai between February 1 and 9.
