The national Capital is a cultural hub where various events are held to promote different cultures of different states. When it comes to artworks, Delhi perfectly plays its role as the capital city of India.
Nearly all states find their respective authentic and twisted artworks scattered in the city. In order to bring a taste of the art and culture from different states under one roof, Delhi Tourism in association with Dastkari Haat Samiti has organised a festival of colours at Dilli Haat, Janakpuri from March 11 to March 20. This unique festival aims to present the artistic works of various Indian artisans and portray the blend of traditional and modern art through their works. Leading artisans from different parts of India have been invited to display their artistic works such as Khurja pottery, terracotta, handmade wooden items, Gujarati tie and dye items, banana/natural fibre items, silver jewellery, kites from Gujarat, paper craft and wire craft, Rajasthani Shibori art and tie and dye. Dilli Haat, Janak Puri is a multi-purpose, socio-cultural complex with a ‘bazaar’ feel to it. It is an urban version of the traditional weekly market, with a delightful mix of craft, cuisine and culture.
