Karachi people finally have an escape from the boring weekends and being stuck in a rut, as The Creative Karachi Festival is kicking off this Friday! It is Karachi’s renowned two-day festival of interdisciplinary arts and creativity, transformed into a weekend ‘mela’ and held in the generous grounds of the Alliance Française.
Conceptualized in 2014 for the first time by T2F’s passionate founder, Sabeen Mahmud, the event was famously dubbed as a ‘non-stop party in the park!’. It was aimed to take place annually as a collective showcase of all the activities hosted at T2F all year round. After a long gap of three years, T2F is pleased to announce it’s third Creative Karachi Festival, CKF 2019, which will take place on Friday 30th and Saturday 31st at the Alliance Francaise.
This time, Karachi’s favourite weekend arts festival promises to transform our tiny corner of the megalopolis of Karachi into a buzzing wonderland of music, art, food and creativity through an exceptional line-up featuring:
- 14 music concerts
- a group exhibition “Karachi ke Nazaaray” featuring 18 artists
