DELHI WALK FESTIVAL

BE A PART OF THE DELHI WALK FESTIVAL 2017

It is for good reason that Delhi has been a muse to so many poets, writers, artists, academicians and wanderers. For inhabitants and travellers alike, exploring Delhi is an enriching experience and especially rewarding when done through walking. This historic city, that continues to reinvent itself has an ever-growing wealth of experiences and stories to offer. There are many things we love about it and enough that we don’t. We go about our daily routines, often cribbing about the people, traffic and pot-holes, wishing things were better or we were elsewhere. But with a little leisure and effort, we'll learn to appreciate her more.

Walking (literally and notionally) allows ‘mobility’ by trespassing cultural, social and class boundaries. In the unique historical setting of Delhi, walking around is also an interesting play with the idea of time. For instance, the ‘journey’ between a monument built during the Delhi Sultanate and a newly constructed metro station (barely a few meters away and where its many citizens cross paths), makes walking in Delhi a fascinating experience.

The walks are designed with the hope that they generate curiosity for the lesser known, appreciation for the unfamiliar, nostalgia for the outgoing and new possibilities for future Delhi. The Delhi Walk festival shall celebrate the vibrancy and multiplicity of this fast transforming city, while dwelling into its history, composite culture and myriad narratives.

Schedule

The Delhi Walk Festival is obviously about walking. Walk - to discover, to get lost, to learn, to unlearn, to know your city better..... But mostly walk to find yourself through these myriad frameworks of urban existence. Sign up for your walk.
