Research conducted by the Art X Company:

       Festivals From India – Needs Analysis & Audience Insights is a research study that aims to outline the needs of         the festivals sector in India, how it understands and measures its audiences and how festival goers engage and         interact with festivals in India. The study was commissioned by the British Council as part of its Festivals for               the Future programme, which brings emerging and established festivals together to connect, create and             
       collaborate on international projects, with the vision to strengthen the creative economies of India and the UK     
       and enable sustainable capacity building in both countries. The study was utilised for the creation of this digital         portal. Festivals From India, which is supported by the British Council and designed and developed by     
       ArtBramha Consulting LLP., is the first-ever online platform to showcase India’s arts and culture festivals.
