Infosys Foundation has announced the commencement of the second edition of its cultural festivals across eight cities in the country, in association with Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, to promote India’s visual and performing arts. Notably, this year marks 25 years of collaboration between the two organizations both of whom share a common vision and mission to preserve and promote the cultural heritage of India.

In order to preserve traditional and classical art forms, the second edition of the cultural program aims to give more than 3,000 artists from different countries to showcase their skills. This year’s cultural festival will include artists’ camps, music events, a library, a story camp, dance, art and poetry.

In an effort to build, unite, and promote the indigenous folk-art communities, the first cultural festival will be held in Chandigarh for a week starting on October 16th, 2023. Subsequent festivals will be held in Jaipur, Bengaluru, Pune, Nagpur, Bhubaneshwar, Thiruvananthapuram, and Kolkata.
