‘Heritage  Festival- 2014’ as the name suggests is a festival to celebrate the rich heritage of the Indian sub-continent which includes diverse cultures and ethical backgrounds.

It is an initiative of GOPIO Sydney  where in the team members are trying to bring  the rich and diverse Indian culture under one roof. This event is scheduled for September 7, 2014 at Sydney Bahai’s Centre, 107 Derby St Silverwater 2128.

India is a land of diversity and there is  ‘unity in that diversity’ which makes that country  unique. Every state has its own  language, its own culture , life styles, and festivals  but when it comes to represent the country on international platform,  India’s diverse dance forms, music, culture etc. creates a magic.

Keeping this in view , GOPIO Sydney is organising  ‘Heritage INDIA Festival 2014’ to showcase the rich and diverse Indian culture by way of Indian Arts, music, dance, culture and cuisine so as  to promote the cultural identity of Indian Diaspora as well as cultural diplomacy for better Indo-Australian relations.

Bhupinder  Chhibber, President of GOPIO,  Sydney   is very optimistic  about the event.  He feels exuberant while emphasizing on  the fact that they are involving and sourcing the upcoming local talent and not bringing any established artists from overseas.

“A plethora of cultural activities are arranged by various cultural and linguistic groups of Diaspora, most of these have either regional or Bollywood tones but none of them have really tried to embark on the idea to showcase rich and diverse cultural forms and ethos from most of the states of India. GOPIO Sydney has taken a lead in this direction”.

“ This festival is unique in itself as it is  different from the routine events where generally  Bollywood overshadows everything. It is a festival to represent different dance forms, culture, life style , festivals  of the different states  of India .  Furthermore  we are  trying to bring forward the local talent and  we are not bringing any established  artists from overseas”.

“We are encouraging the local talent to come forward and participate. This event is particularly  devoted towards the Indian community living in Australia . It  will be a good platform for the new  artists to come forward and showcase their talent as in this way they will get exposure and a chance to share their talent with other community people,” adds Chhibber.

 So,  don’t miss the chance to showcase your talent by participating in Heritage Festival -2014. There is no age bar. Doors are open for anyone and everyone from Indian background!!!!!!
