Being a city filled with diverse culture and creativity, Mumbai will witness a week-long celebration of Art, uniqueness and culture through GoodHomes for Art-an initiative by GoodHomes magazine to foster love for art and to make it accessible for all.

The red carpet witnessed celebrities like ace fashion designer Pria Kataria Puri, Kahani Arte-Merchant, Nisha JamVwal and Sangeetha Chopra who graced the event with their presence.
The weeklong celebration of art will include talks, shows, workshops and much more. The agenda of this initiative is to break the misconception of art being elitist by connecting art with public.

The events, workshops and open discussions between renowned artists and amateur art enthusiasts will enlighten every participant and help create and increase their passion for Art. The Art-week serves as an opportunity to help one understand art not only as a passion, but also as a way of expression.
