In celebration of their 10th anniversary edition (and in response to the global pandemic) the 10-day July Indian Summer Festival will move online with 10 specially curated-for-screen digital events over 10 weeks! From Grammy Award-winning musicians to emerging poets, razor sharp economists to visionary environmental warriors, this year’s programming spans literary dialogues, intellectual debates, musical performances, and interactive culinary experiences. Indian Summer Festival has built its reputation on its loving and audacious curatorial punch, and this 10th anniversary edition sees a stunning global cast of talent applying its creative power to address this unsettling time.


Every Saturday from May 16-July 18, register for upcoming events for free or if you can become a supporter or patron of the festival. 


Check out the full schedule of Online Events here including THE VIRUS IS A WAKE UP CALL featuring captivating speakers and renowned food experts Vandana Shiva and David Suzuki.
