Cultures of Peace:
Festival of the Northeast
Venue: United Theological College (UTC). 63 Millers Rd Benson Town, Bengaluru, Karnataka 560046
Cultures of Peace – Festival of the Northeast tries to showcase the diverse and vivid cultures of India’s Northeast through writing, music, film, theatre, media, photography and so on and bring important, pertinent discussions to the forefront of public discourse. It aims to build bridges and make connections with the rest of India, and to create awareness of the region, as it is, in its present day context.
Since it started in 2011, the festival has been organised by Zubaan in collaboration with the Heinrich Boll Foundation. This year, Cultures of Peace will be hosting events in Guwahati (October), Bangalore (November), and New Delhi (December/January) with a different focus in each city.
