Now in its seventh year Swan Festival of Light celebrates Deepavali by representing Indian fine arts and culture to the public of WA as well as promoting WA’s multiculturalism through Perth’s exemplary performing artists. As in previous editions of the festival, there will be performances by a variety of WA based cultural groups and high quality international performing artists, as well as a presentation of collaborative works by some of these artists.

This year the festival will run for five days, starting on Deepavali day on Wednesday 22nd October. The festival will feature an array of culinary delights as well as beautiful performances by a variety of WA based cultural groups and high quality international performing artists.

The Act-Belong Commit workshops are a series of workshops and demonstrations to be held prior to the main performances. These include music and dance workshops, art and crafts workshop, health workshop and cooking demonstrations. There will also be other activities for the young such as henna tattooing, face painting, umbrella painting, tarot reading and palmistry.
