Join us at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art for Holi Festival of Colours, hosted in partnership with GemArts. Celebrate colour and the Holi tradition through artist's workshops, henna stations, dance, music and food.
Taking place throughout the building, you can enjoy exhibition tours and join contemporary artists exploring rangoli. The artists will create a large-scale, evolving rangoli and you are invited to make your own rangoli to take home.
The event will culminate in a colourful explosion, where you can throw powder pigment and celebrate the arrival of spring with family and friends.
This one day event, part of GemArts core South Asian celebration programme, connects with BALTIC’s Neighbourly programme which seeks to support people with refugee and asylum-seeking experience. The event takes inspiration from Sutapa Biswas’ exhibition Lumen, open in the Level 3 BxNU gallery.
More details and a full programme will be announced in early 2022.
Holi Festival of Colours at BALTIC is a collaboration between BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and GemArts.
