In January 2019, four Welsh artists and arts organisations traveled to Kolkata, often referred to as the culture capital of India, to present their work in theatre, dance and literature.
They presented work at prestigious festivals in the city, undertook workshops with local schools, students and arts professionals, spoke on panels and delivered lectures alongside leading Indian culture professionals.
Wales in Kolkata, the season of Welsh arts activity and collaboration, is supported by the British Council and Wales Arts International - details of the programme can be found below.
This festival is a result of the relationships and networks formed by the 2017-18 India Wales season, a major programme of artistic collaboration between Wales and India, which has paved the way for lasting international cultural networks between the two countries.
Dafydd Elis-Thomas AM, Deputy Minister for Culture, Sport & Tourism said: “I am pleased to see the cultural links between Wales and India continue to strengthen, particularly on the back of all the fantastic work that occurred as part of the Wales/India Season of 2017-18, and Wales being the featured nation at this year’s Kerala Literature Festival. Once again the best of Welsh culture will be on display for Indian audiences to experience, and I wish all participants a successful Festival.”
