Rang De Neela is thrilled to announce an upcoming event that celebrates the powerful connection between arts, health, and philanthropy. This unique evening promises to be a brief, yet impactful experience, filled with joy, Indian traditions, music, fashion, and a collective effort to make a positive impact on individuals’ well-being on 17th December 2023 at NCPA, Mumbai. It is a time for enjoyment and an opportunity to explore the meaningful links between creativity and well-being. The event will have participants in various activities that showcase how art can enhance health and contribute to overall wellness.

One of the highlights of the evening is the “Walk of Confidence” by Women living with diabetes and lower limb amputation. Renowned Designer Vikram Phadnis will be walking the ramp with the diabetes patients who lost a part of their lower limbs due to diabetic neuropathy, delivering messages of resilience and showcasing support for Indian weaves. There are 12 patients and 12 doctors participating in the Walk of Confidence

Additionally, the event will feature a book launch “Art Prescription”, a Yearbook on Rang De Neela, featuring 28 compelling stories on the intersectional domain of arts and health.

Further, the event has two genres of performing arts; first, a Stand-up Comedy and Ventriloquism Act promoting Indian Weaves; second, a musical fusion rock concert that connects us to our roots. This electrifying musical performance will showcase how music can invigorate the spirit, uplift the mood, and contribute to an overall sense of well-being. The fusion of different musical genres will create a memorable experience for all attendees.

To conclude the night on a high note, there will be an auction cum toast held at the magnificent Flamboyant located at the WTC. Attendees will have the opportunity to bid on exclusive sarees that have been woven by an artist and a doctor together, with proceeds going towards a charitable cause. This unique auction is not just a chance to acquire fantastic items but also an opportunity to contribute to a greater cause.
