Suggestions for events:
  • Theatre festival – Local groups/Theatre collectives – Saravana and Rumi to get back to the team. As this is the 10th Pride festival, it would be good to have something like this.
  • Dance/Folk festival – separate from all the Launch events’ performances – again as a special set of events inviting performers from outside the city. This can also be a regional event – Kumar to get back
