The art summit was quite an interesting one. I especially like the open area where the artists were expressing their creativity -live and one could walk in and interact with them!! This becomes a great platform to mingle and exchange your views with celebrated artist…and get enriched!!

Jaipur has an active community who loves art, theater and crafts. The city has been witnessing a lot of action in the last few years. A few popular events to take place in the pink city are Jaipur Literature Festival,  Jairangam,  Jaipur International Film Festival – JIFF to name a few. Jaipur Art Summit is a great addition to the city. There were no entry charges to attend Jaipur Art Summit.

    1. Peter, most of these events take place after monsoon months -rainy months which lasts from June-mid September. So October to February/March is good time for outdoor activity as weather is great. These are cold months, but weather doesn’t fall below 4-5 C – that too during night.

    1. Thanks josee! It was a multi day event. I just attended on one of the days, for few hours. Such events have a very positive effect on society and art lovers,alike . I think atmosphere which promotes interactions with artists certainly puts it on a higher pedestal.
