Knocksense: A local content and recommendations platform

History, arts and heritage are just some of the things that Indore is known for. The constantly developing city has a bustling art and handicraft scene and we're always on the lookout for new platforms that promote it.

This time, we've found something interesting for all you art lovers. This Sunday, you guys can go ahead and pay a visit to the Hanji! Art and Cultural festival in Indore to get in touch with some of Indore's and Madhya Pradesh's oldest forms of expression.

What makes the world turn? Art does!

People say that "art is where you find it" and this is the basis of every artist and all forms of art. At the Indore art and culture festival, you get to explore just that- the vision of artistes.

You can go ahead and explore an event that celebrates art through all the ages. Experiencing something like this, is in itself a rather uplifting affair and we suggest that you should try not to miss it. The event is an eye opener and lets you in, into the worlds of many of Indore's forgotten arts, which are the roots of the city.

What's in it for you?

In Indore, there is actually quite a niche for art of all types. There are enthusiasts and takers for classical, contemporary, abstract or any other!

At this event, you can look forward to murals by three global artists, artwork from 20 artists, stalls and pop up shops with unique handicraft items, a kids play and learning zone and even workshops for adults. This event really is the art afficanado's dream come true, and there's no way we're going to miss it.
