"We are delighted to announce the 2018 edition of the Serendipity Arts Festival with the curtain raiser performance and contemporary art symposium in Mumbai. Both events further our objectives of showcasing the various facets of the creative disciplines, whilst also fostering cultural growth and energising contemporary practice across India. This is a very small taster of what's to come at the third edition of the Festival, where we'll present almost ninety projects, exhibitions, performances and workshops," Sunil Kant Munjal, Founder of The Serendipity Arts Foundation, said in a statement.
