Abhivyakti – The City Arts Project - an initiative of UNM Foundation of the Mehta family of the Torrent Group will begin from 24th November, 2023 till 10th December, 2023. After completing four successful Editions in the city, Abhivyakti is all set to begin power-packed performances by promising talents and noted names in the field of art, dance, music, theatre and visual arts in this 5th Edition.

In line with its previous editions, the 5th Edition of Abhivyakti promises novel works of art and performances for the Ahmedabad city audiences to enjoy and experience absolutely free of any cost and threshold as envisioned by the UNM Foundation team. The 5th edition has 43 performers and presenters making their debut on the stage in line with the mission of Abhivyakti i.e. to provide a platform to artists with original and innovative ideas in different forms of art. The 5th Edition has already evoked great interest from artists and performers as more than 775 entries were received from across Gujarat and also across India.

As Abhivyakti reaches an important landmark of fifth Year, it embarks on a journey to bring forth and breathe life into stories and tell us that #EveryStoryMatters. It is a way of making people feel understood. This festival will bring forth the diverse voices and perspectives that converge in the vast tapestry of human stories. It will be hosting 87artists with unique works for the fortnight across the four segments of Music, Dance, Theatre and Visual Arts, bringing a celebration of art like never before.

"Every story is a unique reflection of who we are as an individual and as a collective. These offer glimpses into the intricacies of our experiences, beliefs and values capturing the beauty of diversity, celebrating the myriad perspectives that enrich our world. In their many forms stories reveal the intricate layers of our shared humanity." said Ms. Sapna Mehta – Director, UNM Foundation.

The art and performances for the 5th Edition are curated by five curators across four genres i.e. Bhargav Purohit in Music, Chirag Modi in Theatre, Dhara Dave Vyas in Visual Arts and Jaimil Joshi in Dance, while Kathanki Raval Sheth is the assistant curator for Dance. The 5th Edition is mentored by the celebrated names from the field of art - Daksha Sheth, Nabibaksh Mansoori, Rajat Dholakia and Saumya Joshi.

Since its first edition in 2018, this one-of-its-kind arts project has witnessed participation from more than 250 artists from Gujarat and on a platform provided by the UNM Foundation's initiative. Over the past five years, Abhivykati has gained the scale and admiration with more than 1 lakh people already being witness to these stellar performances and art expositions.

So, let's check out what's happening during the festival at Gujarat University Campus, Ahmedabad. The audience entry to the festival is open-to-all on first come, first served basis.
