The Mathuradas Mill Culture Crawl

So on Friday the 4th of December, I headed over to Lower Parel after work to catch the inaugural Mathuradas Mill Culture Crawl, a three day art fest with a 'Life around the Neighbourhood' theme.

While not as long, spread out or event-filled as Celebrate Bandra or the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival, this 3 day festival had a bit of romanticism all its own. For one, the fest took place in a mill compound which, unlike Kala Ghoda, is one neighbourhood that's anything but artsy, and worked in its favour as far as being different was concerned.

The Culture Crawl didn't have a lot to see though; I kind of took in all the sights in approx. 15 mins. One could of course have spent a longer time at the music stage and food court. That's where most of the action seemed to be centered.

Here's a pic I took of the art exhibition at the Loft.

I noticed these little markers on my little exploratory walk. They seemed to be directing people through the compound. I don't think they were really needed, but I liked the creative touch.

And these two junk sculptures attracted a lot of photographic attention.

Not a bad start for a local fest. Hopefully, they'll come back stronger next year. Did you visit this or any other city fests? What did you think of them?
