One of India’s key strengths lies in its myriad and diverse culture that has helped it find a unique position on the world map. It was the need to celebrate this cultural heritage and make it accessible to everyone that led to the inception of India Heritage Walk Festival (IHWF), a month-long festival led by Sahapedia. The festival has completed two editions and has also received the PATA Gold Award 2018 under Heritage and Culture category.
Ranging from museums, historically significant monuments and markets, explorations of interesting natural landscapes and areas known for their rich cuisine, to gender-oriented narratives, the programme is curated thematically. The festival is made multifaceted and as inclusive as possible, by targeting diverse user-groups. Led by locals, experts, scholars and researchers, the events will not just tell stories, but also help one discover, learn and experience the vibrant heritage of India. However, the festival goes beyond it’s indicative name to organize baithaks, workshops, Instameets, Twitter chats and Insta Tours.
The past editions saw events led by eminent professionals and scholars like Sohail Hashmi, Esther David, political cartoonist E P Unny, historian Parvati Sharma, Dr. George Michell, Ratish Nanda, artist Vinu V V and Author Tony Joseph. This edition of IHWF works towards a collaborative approach, and invites organisations and individuals to host events with us.
