Confluence Festival – Australia’s biggest ever India festival was launched on July 26, 2016 at Sydney’s Maritime museum .
Confluence Festival of India in Australia is the most significant showcase of Indian arts and culture ever to be staged in Australia, taking place in seven cities across the country between August and November 2016.
Confluence Festival of India in Australia is produced in partnership with the Indian Government Ministry of Culture, the High Commission of India in Australia and the Indian Council for Cultural Relations and is supported by the Australian Government Department of Communication and the Arts.
The festival program includes world-class dance, theatre and music as well as conferences and workshops on Indian innovation, politics and sport. Events are scheduled in Adelaide, Alice Springs, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney. One of the festival’s key components is fostering bilateral ties, with joint performances and collaborations between Indian and Australian artists and thinkers.
Navdeep Suri, the High Commissioner of India in Australia led the national media launch event in Sydney.
The Maritime Museum CEO and Director, Kevin Sumption, were also present. The iconic venue nods to India and Australia’s rich history of trade and cultural exchange, much of which has been transferred by sea.
