India by the Bay: Celebrating Indian Culture
Co-presented by Asia Society Hong Kong Center and Teamwork, "India by the Bay" will be held on 2 - 9 February 2018 in Hong Kong. First organised in 2015, the festival aims encourage cultural exchange between the two regions and to heighten the appreciation and enjoyment of Indian art and culture in different genres, such as music, theatre, dance, food, wellness, film and literature.
India has a rich culture that cannot be experienced just through the Google images, but by watching, tasting, listening and performing different forms of art. Here are some events that will certainly defy your expectations.
Tickets to events can be reserved through the Asia Society Hong Kong Centre.
