We believe in reaching out to youngsters and children as one of our main audience. They are our future and their thoughts and ideas about our society are very important for us. We are organising a drawing competition for school children, where we are inviting children to express their thoughts through painted expressions.These paintings will be show cased through an exhibition at our main event venue.

Short Film/Documentary Screening

We believe films and documentaries are a very creative medium to showcase the status of our society. We will be screening short films/ documentaries in various government school of Udaipur during the festival this year.A lot of us are privileged to watch films but a huge strata of society goes untouched by this art form. We hope to reach to such people who can benefit by the creative art form of films and documentaries.

Street Plays

Theatre is not what is only done on the stage but theatre is something through which we can reach more and more people. At Natyansh we love to get close to the community and perform for them. During the festival, we will be performing street plays at around 100 locations to reach maximum audience in Udaipur.
