A new art festival aims to reach out to patrons in Navi Mumbai.
Art festivals, usually confined to South Mumbai and pockets of Bandra, will move to the other end of the city this month. The five-day Navi Mumbai Art Festival, which starts on January 24, is an initiative to provide an outlet to the artists in Navi Mumbai. "We want to project Navi Mumbai as a potential artscape of the city. Most people staying here are the working class, but there are artists too, who may not have received the right exposure. This festival is an attempt to create a buzz for the art enthusiasts who reside in this part," says Achyut Pallav, one of the organisers and a calligraphist himself.
Apart from featuring huge installations, paper art, photographs and terracotta art, the event will provide an educative platform to art enthusiasts through workshops. The Navi Mumbai Art Festival will take place at Urban Haat, Belapur, and will conclude on January 28.
