Beginning in September 2018, the Australian Government will present Australia Fest – a festival of Australian culture and creativity across India.
Foreign relations are not just about political dialogues and trade delegations, as important as they are, but also about forming cultural connections between peoples.
People-to-people links are vital to promoting mutual understanding and respect between Australia and India. To bridge the imaginations of our two communities, it is important that we continue to build these links across a range of areas.
By showcasing a contemporary, creative, diverse and innovative Australia to Indian audiences, Australia Fest will help build mutual understanding that will pave the way towards greater cooperation and a richer partnership between our two countries.
"I invite you to experience the diversity and dynamism of Australian culture. Come, see and engage with Australia, in your city and through our online platforms, and see what we have to offer. " - Australia's High Commissioner to India, HE Ms Harinder Sidhu
