In an endeavor to bring the SAARC nations together to jointly address the issue of employment and enhance regional integration, Sasian – South Asian Festival is being organised in the Capital At Hotel Ashok. The event will be a launch-pad for sustainable, cross cultural collaborations of South Asians across the globe.
South Asian Festival will also host Lotus Bazaar which is a 4-day-long festival and will include a series of trans-disciplinary workshops, events, performances, symposia, exhibitions and fests. The Bazaar will offer space for direct retail to a selected few artists, artisans and cultural enterprises from all 9 South Asian countries attempting to connect the above to the global market.
