The Festival of Places is a unique event unraveling and interpreting the fascinating bond that exists between People, Places and Memories. The Festival aims to highlight the rich cultural legacy of places that exist in Indian cities, towns and villages. It explores the invaluable cultural fabric and a memory associated with places and provides an opportunity to people for sharing their personal narratives. The Festival is also about understanding the idea of ‘Space as a Place’; about exploring ‘Places’ that form an integral part of cities and towns; about experiencing ‘Places as vital and meaningful connected spaces’ through which urban life throbs; and rediscovering the lost art of creating vibrant Places that nurture culture and creativity.
