Heritage walk festival begins on Friday

It will feature talks by an architectural scholar

The India Heritage Walk Festival, featuring talks by an architectural scholar and an interactive session on The Saree Series, will be held from February 16 to 19.

Organised jointly by UNESCO Chair in Culture, Habitat, and Sustainable Development India at Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Culture, a press release said the festival is of unique relevance, particularly in the context of the rich cultural heritage of Karnataka as assessed and reviewed by two eminent historians and authors from abroad.

While architectural scholar and author researching and cataloguing Hampi George Michell will talk about his latest book ‘Buddhist Rock-Cut Monastries of the Western Ghats’, Julia F.G. Smith, project manager at Border and Fall, Karnataka, will provide an industry insight on building a meaningful digital presence drawing from Border and Fall’s body of work and experience. Both sessions will be followed by interactive sessions.

The festival is open to the public and will be held at the Srishti City Study Centre, Palace Cross Road (next to Mahindra Showroom), at 6 p.m.
