The National Centre for the Performing Arts (NCPA) Summer Fiesta has been a staple tradition providing arts and culture experiences for the children of Mumbai during the holidays. A community-minded festival, it is designed to empower children by inspiring their imagination and broadening their creative minds through exciting, interactive workshops. This festival continually strives to provide new and unique opportunities for children to learn, play, and be active. Local and national talent conducting the workshops at the festival shows a wide array of different skills, from acting, public speaking, dance, music, to writing. Summer Fiesta aims to promote the benefits and values of the performing arts not just by showing children the entertainment but also by getting them involved in high-quality workshops that are fantastic value for money.
Like so many events, the 2020 Summer Fiesta had to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, rather than allow the current state of affairs to halt proceedings entirely, this Diwali, the NCPA is delighted to bring creativity into your home with the Winter Fiesta.
Unleash your child’s creativity and imagination with one of a wide variety of live, interactive workshops for children aged 3 – 20 years of age. From magic, to classical music, to dance, to Shakespeare, to creative writing, to physical theatre, there is something for everyone at every age. These workshops focus on enhancing imagination, creative thinking, and self-expression. Participants will learn various skills in an informal, non-competitive environment.
One of the great benefits of having these incredible workshops online is that it allows us to be truly national and reach out to parts of the country that have not had the opportunity to participate in a workshop at the NCPA. This taps into one of the great virtues of art: bringing people together. Our hope is that, even after we can welcome people back to our theatres and rehearsal rooms, this initiative will continue and allow us to develop relationships with young creative people all over India.
Participants will receive an official certificate of participation from the NCPA, signed by the workshop leader and NCPA Genre head. Above all else, we want all participants, whether they book for a single workshop or multiple, to have an enriching and fun experience.
Age group: 3 to 20 years
