30 Curators, 300 Speakers, 11 streams and infinite new ideas. The third edition of The Coalition Festival is back to bring India’s Creative Community under one roof in order to fuel the next wave of ideas and creativity. Being held at the Talkatora Stadium, New Delhi, the festival that goes on till March 6 will see some of the most creative minds engage in interactions, workshops, panel discussions and events. These will be followed by unwinding sessions with musicians, comedians and special screenings. The event was founded by Only Much Louder (OML) and Do One Thing, and resulted in providing a platform for entrepreneurs, freelancers, students, professionals and anyone wanting to turn their ideas into businesses. At TC/3, ideas will cross-pollinate and engage in dialogue to evoke the thought process—everything from the arts to the commercial will be discussed, including promotion and branding strategies. The power-packed sessions will also discuss the social impact that participants' art has had on the others.
The festival is for anyone willing to listen, network and collaborate to give birth to new creative projects. With speakers representing collectives such as All India Bakchod, The Viral Fever, St+Art, Mid Day, Quint, The Raghu Dixit Project, MIT Media Lab India, Pretentious Movie Reviews, Oxford University Press, Elle, Buzzfeed, Scroll, Wishberry, the unending list of industry titans is bound to tempt the onlooker. There’s something here for everyone—from independent filmmakers and musicians to journalists and curators. This year’s list of curators consists of 30 industry experts including film personalities Guneet Monga and Freida Pinto, comedians Tanmay Bhat and Kaneez Surka, social media experts Shilpa Keswani (YouTube India) and Pratiksha Rao (Twitter India) and many more.
Vijay Nair, CEO, Only Much Louder, says, 'For us, The Coalition goes beyond a just a platform showcasing creativity, it serves as a hub for inspiration, one that 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.'
