New Delhi, Jan 29 (IANS) The Coalition, a festival opening a path for motivating young minds of creative communities including publishing, journalism, hospitality, fashion, photography, music and comedy, will return with its third edition in March.
The Coalition (TC3), which aims at bringing the creative community together under one roof with the aim of fuelling the next wave of creative ventures in the country, will be held at the Talkatora Stadium here from March 4-6.
TC3 will showcase a variety of ideas through carefully curated sessions, workshops, panels and networking events. The festival will also offer opportunities to unwind with live performances by musicians, comedians and special screenings.
It will see 30 curators and 200 speakers for 11 streams, read a statement.
Founded by Only Much Louder and Do One Thing, The Coalition started off as a boot camp for freelancers, entrepreneurs, students, professionals and other aspirants who wanted to transform their ideas into a business.
Vijay Nair, CEO of Only Much Louder, says for them the festival goes beyond a platform showcasing creativity, but serves as a hub for inspiration.
“It generates ideas, innovations, new technologies, and creative visions that drive progress. It’s time we stopped thinking of the term ‘startup’ as just something related to digital platforms and IT,” Nair said.
The festival will begin with a day-long series of focused sessions with industry experts from distinct streams including design, publishing, journalism, hospitality, fashion, makers, gaming, art and photography, music, comedy, content creation and social media, hosted across different cultural centers in the national capital.
And all the streams will merge together at Talkatora Stadium for the weekend. Creative leaders will engage audiences through a series of panels and talks exploring all sides of creative enterprise.
It will also host workshops and business clinics that will support budding creative entrepreneurs by offering advice from key mentors and funders.
For the first time, the festival will be ticketed.
