A few tree enthusiasts have been very excited to think through and put together a much needed tree festival for Bangalore. This festival hopes to celebrate the history, culture and natural heritage of our city.
The festival has been christened “NERALU ( ????? )”, meaning shade in Kannada and dates have been set for 8th and 9th February 2014. A green, peaceful venue in the heart of the city has been chosen as the venue – Bal Bhavan at Cubbon Park. This is going to be a not-for-profit event and a volunteer driven initiative.
As part of this, NERALU would like to weave in a fulfilling collaboration of naturalists, ecologists, visual artists, performance artists, writers, storytellers, historians and citizens to come together to help make this festival successful.
