Holi Festival of Colours

Holi Festival of Colours

Holi Festival of Colours

Date: Saturday 19th March 2022
Time: 12-4pm

Tickets: FREE, no booking required

Join GemArts for Holi Festival of Colours, hosted in partnership with BALTIC. Celebrate colour and the Holi tradition through artist workshops, Henna stations, dance, music and food.

Taking place throughout the building, you can enjoy exhibition tours and join contemporary artists exploring rangoli. The artists will create a large-scale, evolving rangoli and you are invited to make your own rangoli to take home.

The event will culminate in a colourful explosion, where you can throw colourful pigment and celebrate the oncoming of spring.This bit is fun and messy, so please wear something you don’t mind getting dirty. 

This one-day event, part of GemArts core South Asian celebration programme, connects with BALTIC’s Neighbourly programme which seeks to support people with refugee and asylum-seeking experience, and the 
Sutapa Biswas’ exhibition Lumen, open in the Level 3 BxNU gallery.

More details and a full programme will be announced in early 2022.

Usually celebrated in March, Holi is a Hindu festival that celebrates spring, love, and new life.

Holi Festival of Colours at BALTIC is a collaboration between GemArts and BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art.

Supported by:
Newcastle Hindu Temple, Chai Events, Spice FM, Newcatsle Uni South Asian Society and Newcastle Uni Tamil Society
