JANUARY 24 - 31 2019 | COLOMBO, SRI LANKA

The sixth edition of interdisciplinary arts festival COLOMBOSCOPE will be held at different historical venues and cultural spaces in Colombo from 25th until 31st January 2019.

Over thirty intergenerational local and international visual artists, filmmakers, musicians and scientific experts will participate in SEA CHANGE; evoking stories of maritime history, delving into oceanic ecology and shipping infrastructure. Ancient Lanka’s strategic place amidst the Indian Ocean trade network gave shape to a cosmopolitan lineage of social pluralism and cultures of connectedness linking distant ‘ports of call’ from Rome in the West to China in the East, waters from the Bay of Bengal to the Mozambique Channel. How may we re-imagine the Indian Ocean world today, not simply in extractive terms of economic growth but instead as a realm of cultural affinities, confluence of languages and a vital artistic meeting point?
