Join us as we celebrate International Mother Language Day with Kathputli Utsav – A Festival of Traditional Indian Arts.

Kathputli Utsav celebrates the skill, talent and culture of the Kathputli Colony, a colony of street performers in Delhi, India. The event will celebrate linguistic and cultural diversity of the colony, and showcase some of its great artists, with performances of traditional Indian arts.

These performances will be followed by an ‘in conversation’ with Ruth Daniel (CEO, Artistic Director, In Place of War) and Vijay Maitri (community leader and a theatre artiste), with more to be confirmed.

Presented in partnership by The University of Manchester’s Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute and Creative Manchester. This event can be attended both in-person and virtually.
