India, Literally: Literature & Art India, Literally: Literature & Art
India is a fabulous destination that defies description - a melting pot of noise, colour and frenetic activity; a country of coloured cities such the Pink City of Jaipur, where start this gorgeous escape.

This tour is a collaboration with the beautiful Donna Hipgrave, a devotee of all things India, a lover of the Jaipur Literature Festival and the Kochi-Muziris Art Biennale .

Mystical and magical, India has a long held fascination for outsiders for its magnificent ancient cultures, religion, art & history.  It has an ever increasing profile in the art and literature worlds,  particularly due to these two incredible events.   Showcased on this tour and combined with an in-depth exploration of the local culture,  you will experience the ultimate India experience.

In Jaipur, discover the excitement of, and be immersed in what is now regarded as the 'greatest literary festival on earth'.  Enjoy the opportunity to mingle with authors, debate the latest books and experience this incredible festival.  If you love literature, reading and debate, then this will be your version of heaven!   You will explore Jaipur on foot, indulge in some superb dining and shop 'til you drop (Donna is in the know and will certainly take you to the right places)!   

Then it is to Mumbai for the next phase of this beautiful journey, an exploration of Southern India, its art and its culture.  A totally different picture of this extraordinary destination will emerge, from contemporary Mumbai, to Kochi and beyond where you will experience a fascinating cocktail of cultures.  The art, the architecture, the food and the way of life is totally different to Rajasthan and you will be delighted by the beauty of Kerala combined with the remnants of the past, including influences from China, Portugal, the British and the Dutch still visible, alongside the India of today.  

In the words of the Kochi Biennale Foundation itself:  'the Kochi-Muziris Biennale seeks to invoke the latent cosmopolitan spirit of the modern metropolis of Kochi and its mythical past, Muziris, and create a platform that will introduce contemporary international visual art theory and practice to India, showcase and debate new Indian and international aesthetics and art experiences and enable a dialogue among artists, curators, and the public.'  How fabulous!!!
