India Week Hamburg 2009 - Logo-with-date

Ten days to explore India in Hamburg – the third India Week Hamburg is coming up, with a wide ranging programme on current developments in Indian business, politics and culture. It is run by the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg in cooperation with organisers from Schleswig-Holstein, and will also include events aimed at building relations with India and providing insights into contemporary Indian culture.

The Indian sub-continent has long since developed into a global player. Its wealth of culture and its ancient traditions exert tremendous fascination, and so does its dynamic economic and demographic development. India is rapidly becoming one of the world′s leading economic nations – a development which proceeds even in these times of global financial crisis, with economic growth of 7% expected for this year again.

The relations with India are also to be intensified in education, science and research. India Week 2009 is putting on a range of events with scientists, students and partner universities. Finally, India Week features a wide range of cultural events showcasing the traditional and modern culture of India – with concerts, readings, film series, exhibitions, discussion events, dance workshops for children, and a Diwali festival as the highlight. The mood will be set by a programme at Kampnagel, with the dance company directed by Padmini Chettur, one of the most exciting choreographers from the young Indian scene.

Pre events:

The Kolkata based photographer Udaysankar Mukherjee and the Hamburg photographer Jörg Böthling set a focus on India′s megacities: Twenty black and white and also some colour images tell the story of life and survival in the unique and exciting metropolises.
