For over two decades, the popular Kala Ghoda Arts Festival has been an important part of Mumbai’s rich history. This year, in its 21st edition, visitors will be able to witness a plethora of workshops, performances, stalls and artwork installations.

For the first time in its history, Kala Ghoda Art Festival does not have any title sponsors and is completely crowdfunded from Ketto.org wherein patrons of art had shown their support to carry forward the festival’s legacy in preserving Mumbai’s cultural heritage. It truly stands by the phrase for the people, of the people and by the people. 

20 years ago, Kala Ghoda Association was formed with an idea to give back to the city that they had always considered as home - the thriving megapolis of Mumbai. Thereafter, the biggest street art festival of the country was born. This year, the organisers commemorated 20 years of this iconic festival and also the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.
