Shiv Nadar School, Noida, (a not-for-profit initiative of the Shiv Nadar Foundation) is putting together the first of its kind international and integrated arts festival — ‘Kaafila’ that will witness participation from budding art enthusiasts from across the world.
It is the third edition of a student-led initiative.
The students believe that art has no bounds, and a mere pandemic cannot shut them down! Thus, the theme of this year’s festival is “Freedom” and it will be organised in virtual format from October 15 to 17.
The festival aims to explore the possibilities of collaborative work beyond geographical limitations and present artistic works that have crossed defined boundaries.
Artistes and students of 18 schools from India and abroad, including from Russia, Japan and Mexico, would be participating in this.
The art fest will cover four baskets of arts: theatre, music, dance, visual arts. One first-of-its-kind initiative is Collab Lab: a collaborative theatre project, where participants from different schools will come together virtually for seven days and will create a theatrical play around the theme of the festival.
The culmination of the project will be streamed live for the public to view and engage with across the globe on October 16.
There will be a virtual gallery walk and an online art platform to connect artistes in need with interested patrons of art.
The festival is an amalgamation of art activities, competitive, non-competitive events and workshops. It will have captivating theatre, melodious musical jam sessions and invigorating dance shows.
