For its 24th biennial, Europalia International will bring India to Brussels, the capital of the country and the de facto capital of Europe. Since 1969, Europalia is a major international arts festival held every two years to celebrate one invited country’s cultural heritage. This year, during 4 months one can discover India, this mysterious and fascinating country, where different cultures meet, interact and bring about a unique creativity.
From 4 Octobre 2013 till 26 January 2014 europalia.india will translate India’s immense cultural wealth into a multidisciplinary program comprising exhibitions, concerts, dance and theatre performances, conferences, cinema and literature events.
In the run up to the europalia.india festival, Europalia invites everyone to share their memories and experiences of India by participating in the online europalia.india photo contest: Indomaniacs.
The aim of the contest is to make an online page where every participant, professional or amateur, can share his view on India.
According to the festival’s structure, a theme will be proposed to the public each month, for which the participants can place maximum 5 pictures.
Europalia will select its favourite pictures every month and showcase them in the virtual gallery.
