Multitude of business and culture events during India Unlimited festival in Stockholm

April 22, 2014 - 00:00-April 26, 2014 - 00:00

For the second year, the Indian Embassy in Stockholm coordinates India Unlimited, a series of interesting events in both business and culture during the period 22 April – 26 June 2014. All events take place in Stockholm. 
India Unlimited is a platform which seeks to strengthen India-Sweden connections and partnerships in all the areas. The goal is to bring together the best of India and Sweden in enduring, sustainable win-win partnerships. This is realised through business seminars, conferences, and exhibitions in collaboration with platform partners Swedish India Business Council (SIBC) and Business Sweden; and regarding culture contemporary India will be presented through its culture, literature, music, film, education, cuisine & wine, art, design & architecture, fashion and its many traditional crafts. Many organisations and institutions are involved, but the Indian Embassy of Sweden has the main responsibility. See the full programme.

 
Besides a large number of business events, involving all the major Swedish companies working in India, the programme includes an Indian food festival at Clarion Hotel, exhibitions of photography and Indian design, a Bollywood party, an Indian film festival, seminars on Sustainable Infrastructure, and Innovation and Entrepreneurship, and a fascinating event entitled Varanasi Junction on 26–27 April.
Varanasi Junction is is an art vernissage as well as an Indian cultural theme weekend held in Kista underground bazaar, in the northern suburb of Stockholm. The artist Elin Thorsén exhibits her photos, painting and other artwork, inspired by traditional cultural interactions from the swarming Varanasi. Guest lecturers Willy Pfändtner, Uppsala University, and Stig Lundgren, Stockholm University, will speak about about hinduism, pilgrimages and the holy city as a concept.
This event is jointly hosted by SYDASIEN web magazine and Svensk-Indiska föreningen. 
Both adults and children are welcome to workshops, where you can write your name in Devnagari and create your own art. There will be Indian food and chai in the underground bazaar  – once you step down the flight of stairs you will be in Varanasi with all your senses.
