World Culture Festival in New-Delhi to unite 3.5 million people

The 3-day festival is a celebration of cultural diversity and Art of Living’s 35 years of service to humanity organized by The Art of Living, a UN accredited global NGO, the ‘World Culture Festival' (WCF) is set to take place from 11-13 March 2016 in India’s capital and expected to host millions from over 155 countries.
In what is believed to be a historic gathering to celebrate peaceful co-existence and unity in diversity, the World Culture Festival will bring together people from different cultures, nations, and faiths as a one-world family in a resounding message of peace.

Speaking on the occasion, Art of Living founder and renowned international peace ambassador Sri Sri Ravi Shankar says, "We are a part of one humanity and we express ourselves differently through music, art and food. Celebrating our diverse cultures binds us together and expands our perspectives. The World Culture Festival emphasizes on coexistence, demonstrating the power of peace by bringing millions of people together. It is an opportunity for world leaders from cultural, social, political, business fields to come together to rekindle human values in the pursuit of happiness and peace."

The World Culture Festival will feature a diverse program of cultural show acts, ceremonial speeches of dignitaries, an interfaith meet and platforms for leadership discussions.

Through the presentation of traditional and country-specific dance, music, art and costumes from around the world, the festival aims to foster a deeper mutual understanding between people of different faiths, nationalities and backgrounds, an important concern of the Art of Living and Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. High-level dignitaries will share their insights on how to foster world peace and intercultural dialogue. On all three days of the festival, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar will lead a ‘Peace Meditation’ which would be joined by millions from across the globe.
