This year, the festival is set to host a weekend centered around the evocative theme of ‘Identity’. It embarks on a journey into the depths of personal evolution, investigating its intricate dance with societal and cultural norms.

The questions it raises are pertinent: how do we cultivate our identity under society’s scrutinizing gaze? How do we remain authentic when societal norms and cultural expectations seem unbending? How do we grow, push boundaries, and navigate the complex terrain of acceptance?

In a world increasingly attentive to the cry for inclusivity, the acceptance of oneself and others remains a formidable challenge. Our daily interactions serve as constant reminders that the freedom to be different is inextricably tied to education, knowledge, reflection, and curiosity.

The festival unfurls a rich tapestry of street arts, offering a peek into the realms of theater, dance, puppetry, circus, and musical performances. The spotlight in this edition is trained on promoting inclusion, encouraging self-acceptance, and fostering acceptance of others.

Expect a warm, community-centric celebration. It invites all to dive into a cultural immersion, while contemplating on pressing issues of identity, inclusion, and acceptance of diversity.
