Following a huge turnout of lakhs of people across venues during the festival the 2019 edition of Serendipity Arts Festival ends with a big note. Over 100 dynamic projects showcasing the visual, performing and culinary arts, across 12 iconic venues in Panaji, Co-Presented by Havells and Powered by HDFC ERGO & GMR, the festival has transformed the city into a vibrant cultural space with multiple exhibitions, performances and immersive art experiences involving over 1500 regional and international artists. One of the key objectives of this year’s Serendipity Arts Festival was to continue being a catalyst for cross-cultural exchange, fostering a sense of unity across disciplines and artforms whilst also erasing regional divisions in the country. Offering equal opportunities to artists, artisans, indigenous and folk art forms, performers and other creative practitioners from all over India, the event aims to foster the development of thriving artistic communities across India by making the arts inclusive, educational and accessible. The Goan public and culture enthusiasts visiting the city from across the world were treated to an impressive array of programming including visual arts exhibitions, large-scale photography and craft installations, music performances, panel discussions, film screenings, culinary workshops and theatre performances across venues including the Adil Shah Palace, Old GIM, Old GMC, Old PWD Complex, Children’s (Art) Park and the Institute of Menezes Braganza hall as well as dance and music performances in the evening in SAG Ground and DB Football Ground.
