India’s First inclusive festival-“Purple Fest: celebrating diversity”

Published on January 09, 2023
Current Context: The first inclusive festival of its sort in India, Purple Fest 2023, kicked off at the Entertainment Society of Goa in Panaji, Goa, on January 6, 2023.
India’s First inclusive festival-“Purple Fest: celebrating diversity”
  • The festival strives to unite people and make the world a friendly and inclusive place for everyone. Dr. Virendra Kumar, the Union Minister for Social Justice & Empowerment, attended the opening ceremony and stopped by an exhibition and sale where Divyangjans-made goods were displayed (people with disabilities).
  • From January 6 to January 8, 2023, there will be interesting panel discussions, artistic live performances, large displays, and immersive experience zones at "Purple Fest: Celebrating Diversity."
  • Goa has a reputation for hosting extravagant New Year's parties, but with the launch of Purple Fest, the state is moving closer to empowering Divyangjans.
  • It will substantially contribute to the aims and mark an important turning point in Divyangjan's empowerment. The Purple Fest's many events, including Purple Kaleidoscope, an art gallery, Purple Exhibition, a marketplace with aids for the blind, and Purple Bioscope, a showing of the film "86" with sign language interpreters, are designed to help people better appreciate the ideas.
  • In conjunction with the Purple Fest in Goa, Union Minister Dr. Virendra Kumar opened a two-day sensitization session on "Issues relevant to the Empowerment of persons with Disabilities."
  • To strengthen Divyangjan, the business, non-profit, and governmental sectors must work together to create a more inclusive society. This is the focus of the two-day workshop.
  • To refer to people with impairments, the term "Viklang" was changed to "Divyaang" (divine body) in 2016.
