Kala ghoda Art Festival 2014

Heritage Walks

It is not the honor that you take with you, but the heritage you leave behind.

-Branch Rickey

 

Mumbai - a city of myriad personalities. A city whose history is influenced by illustrious empires, a city which finds order in chaos, and amidst the pace and pause, a city of evolving dreams and manifestations of cultural ethos. Walk with us and discover more about the city that baffles, overwhelms and inspires so many. Come and explore the idea of the city through its heritage, standing tall, embracing the change and welcoming the future.

Our thematic for the 2014 festival is ‘MONUMENTUM’

Participants are welcome on FIRST COME - FIRST SERVE basis and a TOKEN for the walks/bus rides can be collected from the HELP DESK (at the Police Chowki on Rampart Row, near Max Mueller Bhavan[MMB]) a few hours before.
