India By The Creek' Festival Takes Off In Dubai

Published on : 02-03-2024

India By The Creek' Festival Takes Off In Dubai

Spanning over three days, Dubai Creek will feature a lively ambience as artists from the United Arab Emirates and India will put up a show immersed in creative flavours.

The first-ever 'India by the Creek' festival is scheduled at Al Seef Park in Dubai from March 8-10. Admission to the festival will be free for all. The event promises a lively celebration of the deep historical connections between India and the emirate of Dubai.

Presented by the Dubai Duty Free in collaboration with the Consulate General of India, Dubai and Teamwork Arts, with support from Dubai Economy and Tourism, and Khaleej Times, this event marks a significant cultural milestone for both countries.

“Eight months ago, even before I came to Dubai, India, by the Creek was a concept given to me when I was in the middle of G20 duties. I was told about the vision of having a wonderful curated cultural event. Having known Teamwork Arts and the kind of work they do… whether it’s the Jaipur Literature Festival or the ‘India by the Nile’ in Egypt, were a huge success. Also, when I came to Dubai, I realized there is no shortage of India here.”, said, Satish Kumar Sivan, Consul General of India in Dubai.

Satish Kumar Sivan also stated that the UAE and India have a distinctive and exceptional relationship beyond mere trade and commercial interests.

He added, “The UAE and India share an extraordinary relationship that transcends trade and mercantile interests. Culture, diversity and tolerance anchor this bond. This festival celebrates that spirit. I am fortunate to see the first edition being staged. This is just the beginning; many more such exchanges are in the offing.”

You can expect

Over three days, Dubai Creek will feature a lively ambience as artists from India and the UAE collaboratively showcase their creativity.

Distinguished figures and performers from India set to join the event include Purushottam Agarwal, an academic and writer; the acclaimed vocalist Malini Awasthi; renowned musician Alif; Navdeep Suri, a former diplomat, Ambassador to the UAE and writer; versatile singer Sonam Kalra; and the legendary band Indian Ocean, among others.

You can witness culture and creativity in action from afternoon until night. Teamwork Arts leverages its extensive experience for the 'India by the Creek' event.

Teamwork Arts has curated over 33 festivals in 72 cities and 26 countries, showcasing top-notch talent in performing and visual arts, literature, knowledge, and social activism. The global presence of JLF now encompasses the US, UK, Canada, Australia, the Maldives, the Middle East, and Europe.

Sanjoy K Roy, Managing Director of Teamwork Arts, said, “The festival aims to forge deeper connections between India and Dubai, becoming an annual highlight on the cultural calendar. Offering free admission to people of all ages, the event promises a captivating blend of activities, workshops, and performances from afternoon until night.”

“Ravi (Menon) and I have spent over 12 years thinking of this concept, talking about the sensibilities and getting a working title for ‘India Talks, ’ which was the initial concept. For Dubai Duty-Free, India is the number one market. We are very excited to be the presenting sponsor of the first India by the Creek festival, which promises to be a rich cultural collaboration that blends both Indian and Emirati culture in a unique and vibrant setting. India accounts for 10 percent of Dubai Duty-Free’s business, which is significant, so being involved with this inaugural event is very important to a key customer base.”, said Ramesh Cidambi, COO, of Dubai Duty-Free.
