The London International Arts Festival (LIAF) is a new annual event celebrating the diverse cultures of East London and beyond. It is organised by Dhruv Arts, which was formed in London in 2004 with the aim of promoting the traditional arts of South Asian music, dance, storytelling and visuals. As Dhruv evolved, it saw the need to provide a platform for contemporary and complimentary cultures and art forms, from which LIAF was born.
The inaugural LIAF will take place between 10 and 12 August 2012. Its curator is composer and violin virtuoso Jyotsna Srikanth, a co-founder of Dhruv Arts. She has programmed a fantastic weekend of live performances that feature Classical, Folk, Jazz and Contemporary music and dance from around the world, including India, Mexico, Serbia, Turkey & the USA.
