The Coalition: A Festival For Creative Individuals


Two years ago, The Coalition was launched as a creative boot camp for individuals who wanted to transform their ideas into a business. However, the main concern for creative ecosystem in India remained – how do we take fields and professions that exist in silos and bring them together as a larger community; a creative force that ignites the cultural growth of the country?’

These lines are what define The Coalition, an initiative dedicated to discovering and more importantly, defining a path for everyone who prefer doodling their time away behind notebook whilst looking outside the windows of their class. Creative people in India have discovered and paved new in roads within a business sector that has been long neglected and buried beneath the rat race in the left-minded world of ours. But while there surely are those who taste appreciation, still many exist without a voice for their creativity. The Coalition envisions a world where people, born to contribute to everything creative do not get silenced out of sheer lack of opportunities, help or support.

Offering a huge platter of streams ranging whether it be content creation, art, music, photography, gaming, all to new a few, this is a must-visit event whether you be a person working 9-to-5 and then spend it trying your hand out at photography or a full time artist or musician on YouTube.
