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 RajgarhiaDirector, 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.”
