The SALA Festival aims to bring together the artists, their creations, their talks in their respective fields, reflecting their affiliations with the South Asian region followed by presentations and interactive sessions allowing the audience to have an immersive experience.

"The South Asian Literature and Art Festival is a wonderful platform to showcase the rich and diverse ‘contemporary’ work coming from the South Asian diaspora.

We would really encourage you to come and experience this array of contemporary work at Montalvo Arts Centre,” Ambika Sahay, Director Art ForumSF stated during a discussion.

The crucial process of selecting these practitioners was based on portraying and justifiably presenting the contemporary practices and the constantly evolving culture.

A few of the writers and poets that would present during this festival would be Vikram Chandra, Vikramaditya Motwane, Varun Grover, Shanthi Sekaran, Minal Hazratwala, Athena Kashyap, Tanu Wakefield, Siddharth Dube, Raghu Karnad, Nayomi Munaweera, Mitali Perkin, Naheed Hasant Senzai and Moazzam Sheikh, director Anurag Kashyap, actor and artist Deepti Naval.

Also present would be the artist Rekha Rodwittiya, from the field of contemporary art and Dipti Mathur and Priyanka Mathew, from the contemporary players in the art market infrastructure to provide their insights on their field of expertise.

Various talks would be moderated by experts from the respective fields to provide the audience with an opportunity to interact with the speakers.

“The soft powers of the world, Art, Literature, Music and Dance allows people to express themselves and how they view the world. SALA embodies these powers,” said Kiran Malhotra with conviction, founding BOD - Art Forum SF, Arts Curator - SALA 2019.
