The second edition of Rangeelu Gujarat, a cultural exhibition, will take place in London’s Brent from September 1 to September 3.
The event will feature both established and emerging Gujarati artists. Workshops in music, dance, fabric, and other art forms will also be held. The three-day event is expected to draw 50,000 visitors.
“There is no particular theme for the event. It is a larger version of the one organised in 2016. But there is addition as well in terms of cinema and literature, which will be showcased and discussed, because Gujarati cinema has developed so much since then,” said Mira Salat, director of Red Lotus Events, a community interest company, at the Ahmedabad Management Association Thursday.
The event will be held at Brent borough in London, where most of the Gujaratis live, informed Salat. The event is being supported by the Council of Brent and the British government.
In its previous edition in 2016, the two-day event had seen a footfall of 27,000. “We showcased and held workshops for Bandhni work, Ajrakh work from Kutch and about 40 artists of Gujarat performed in the event,” said Salat.
