This year's festival brings together a large network of Indian and international artists across more than 70 genres and mediums, with 40 of them exclusively commissioned for SAF17.

The Festival will witness projects curated by eminent personalities like Lillete Dubey, Ranjit Barot, Shubha Mudgal, Prashant Panjiar and many more, and is aimed at rebuilding and reviving India's diverse and varied legacy of the arts. Viewing the success it garnered last year, it is a testimony to the artists' efforts in bringing forward such an exclusive talent pool to a national platform.

Addressing the media, Ms. Smriti Rajgarhia, Director, Serendipity Arts Festival said, "Serendipity Arts Festival has gained much attention since our first edition last year, and we have galvanized the arts to gather more momentum than ever before. We hope to see a larger gathering of audiences this year, especially considering that Goa, with its diverse culture and international audience, is the perfect destination for such a large display of the arts.

The venues are seamlessly connected for surface transportation for all guests attending the festival, and we want to ensure that all our venues are accessible and reachable for everyone.

The artist line-up is incredibly exciting, and we hope to see this year's festival build momentum for many years to come."

About Serendipity Arts Festival

The Serendipity Arts Festival is a multi-disciplinary arts event set over period of eight days in December in the vibrant settings of Panaji, Goa. Curated by a panel of eminent artists and institutional figures, this festival is a long-term cultural project that hopes to affect positive change in the arts in India on a large scale. SAF 2017 will be back with a bang. This year is all about scale and pushing boundaries – SAF 17 will be experimenting with site, form and display. Along with a line-up of scintillating programming spanning music, dance, theatre, visual arts, and culinary arts, this year's edition is an unmissable spectacle of epic proportions.



In addition, the festival will address issues such as arts education, patronage culture, interdisciplinary discourse, and accessibility of the arts. This exciting program of exhibitions and performances will be augmented by spaces for social and educational engagement. Practitioners and audiences will be able to interact with the arts and with each other on a number of levels, in an immersive space that seeks to create discursive opportunities, promote the exchanging of ideas, and inspire the youth of India to access and engage with arts on a meaningful level.
