Serendipity Arts Festival is one of the largest multi-disciplinary arts initiatives in the South Asian region, spanning the visual, performing, and culinary arts, whilst exploring genres with film, live arts, and literature.

The open call is applicable to solo and group performances that may or may not be interdisciplinary in nature.
