    Title Sponsor & Host: Ms. PRIYA PAUL, President, The Park Hotels 

    We are delighted to co-sponsor THE OTHER FESTIVAL. The Park Hotels believes it must play an active role in the preservation and continuation of arts and creativity in India. The Park Hotels’ association with the promotion of contemporary art and culture as well as its social and environmental efforts reflects the vision and philosophy the company stands for and believes in. 

    The Park Hotels, located in Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkata, New Delhi and Visakhapatnam, are a collection of luxury boutique hotels in India managed by APEEJAY SURRENDRA HOTELS. All the hotels lay a very strong emphasis on contemporary design in its private and public spaces. Style and luxury enhances everything - be it paintings, furniture, accessories or dining and entertainment concepts. 

    A walk through any of The Park's luxurious spaces is like a journey through a gallery where art is nurtured in its various forms. The experience is multidimensional. Specially commissioned murals, installations, prints, sculptures and cutting- edge digital art and glass sculpture enrich any interaction at The Park Hotels. Tribal and traditional craft co-exist with their contemporary counterparts. Here artists in the threshold of their careers find place along with the great names. Here every artist finds a forum, every traveler his own moment.
