The AMI Arts festival, now in its second year, is a celebration of the amalgamation of cutting-edge contemporary arts and traditional crafts. As the prevailing darkness slowly recedes, AMI Arts festival 2021 aims to touch the lives of people with hope, positivity and celebrations. The festival will also bear a reflection of the flagship programs organised by KCC throughout the year.
AMI Arts Festival makes it a point to stand not only with the well-known artists, who have made their mark in the art world, but also with lesser-known talented artists, who have invested years of hard work without being recognized, and the promising youngsters, who are struggling to begin their journeys in the present situation.
In addition to visual and performing artists, we will also be showcasing crafts and folk performances. Besides exhibitions, a delightful flea market, music concerts, workshops, panels and a range of other programs, the festival will also honour selected visual and performing artists as well as craft people with achievement awards. So, come and usher in the festive spirit with us!
