    “This is the second year of our association with THE OTHER FESTIVAL in Chennai and we are delighted with the opportunity of bringing to you this inspiring experience. The Park Hotels has been promoting and nurturing art and creativity in India since its inception in 1967. Our committed involvement to promote contemporary art, culture and creativity is in synergy with our social and environmental efforts that reflect our vision and philosophy. 

    The Park Hotels, located in Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkata, New Delhi and Visakhapatnam are a collection of luxury boutique hotels managed by Apeejay Surrendra Hotels. Inspiring design. Refreshing people. Rejuvenating spaces.   

    Innovative dining. Sensuous entertainment. Instant connectivity. Edgy art.  - all combine to create an inspiring experience that balances mind and  body,  work and play. 

    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, cutting edge digital creations and glass sculpture are showcased along with tribal and traditional arts by great names and aspiring artists.  A forum for all. A rare insight for the travelers. 

    Celebrating Music, Dance, Theatre and Art in all its myriad forms, The Park’s THE OTHER FESTIVAL this year presents a range of talent from around India, USA, UK, France and Taipei.
