Program 2024 Arts Fest Prelude 13 & 14 July The Art of Everyday Life

Welcome to the heart of our festival’s journey - the Program. For 2024, the RBI Arts Festival theme is “Art of Everyday Life.” This theme celebrates how art transforms daily experiences into something special and meaningful. It includes creative retellings of history and mythology and explores various art forms like movies, theatre, books, and poetry. Originally rooted in fine arts, where everyday materials like waste were used to create sculptures and tapestries, this theme challenges traditional perspectives and embraces the diverse ways art enhances our understanding of the world.
