Now in its second edition, what makes the ‘Kids Arts Festival’ even more amazing is that it is curated, performed and managed by the Kids Advisory Panel, made up of a team of 7 under-12 year olds!

All panellists underwent arts appreciation sessions and volunteered their time to conceptualise the programmes under the ‘Kids Arts Festival’ banner.
