What to Expect at the Opening of Contemporary Arts Week

Ipsita posted on 2nd October

We told you we’d keep you posted on all that’s happening at Contemporary Arts Week, and now that the opening weekend is here, we're here to give you the deets on what you should watch out for when you’re there.

The music, the food

There’s a superb line-up of gigs by bands like Bandish Projekt, Temple of Drum, and Vocal Rasta. You can catch Hari & Sukhmani live on Sunday as well, if you’re up for some Punjabi folk music. There’s also going to be a bunch of food stalls {like Jugmug Thela, Asian Haus, and Captain Grub} to keep your tummy happy.

Do the rumba

If you want to do more, you won’t be disappointed. You can try the origami-making with a session by Honey Kohli, or take a Zumba workshop by Raveena Singh for a quick, fun taste of Latin dance forms like Salsa, Rumba, and Merengue.

If you’re up for some experimenting {and aren’t the shy sorts}, the Clowning session by Sukhmani Kohli may be right up your alley. Be prepared for quite a bit of improvisation, though.

Get there Uber quick

If you’re thinking of booking an Uber to get to the venue, your first ride’s free! Just use the code CAW2015 when you book your ride. Make sure to look for LBB when you get there!
