Gender Bender is the first festival of its kind in India that showcases new works of art around gender, as concept, discourse, construct, and as art itself, creating a space for gender with artists and audiences alike.The festival aims to contribute to the ever-evolving understanding of gender and its implications, to help produce works that re-examine and re-imagine the concept.

Details of the Festival and its fringe events, including performances, conversations, panels etc., will be announced once the COVID-19 situation becomes clearer.
