March 11, 2017 11:00AM-4:00PM World Culture Day at Penn Museum: Hello, India!

India is home to more than 1.3 billion people. With Bollywood films, diverse mind/body and spiritual practices, and richly aromatic foods captivating the interests and palates of a rapidly growing international audience, it’s time for an exploration of India!

Discover more about the history and culture of India during this day long celebration! Enjoy traditional music and dance presentations and workshops, sari wrapping, a language workshop, an introduction to traditional Karnataka cooking, yoga, film, craft activities, games originating from India and a rangoli sand painting activity for all.

The day culminates on a colorful and playful note with a Holi Celebration—the traditional festival of colors, the festival of love—in the outside Warden garden.

The Council of Indian Organizations in Greater Philadelphia, Sruti: The Indian Music and Dance Society, Mustard Seed Film Festival, and Bharatiya Cultural Center are cosponsors of the event.
