5 5 Jaipur Heritage International Festival 2007 People’s Platform for Creativity and Sustainable Development, Supported by UNESCO INTRODUCTION Jaipur Heritage International Festival was held annually between 2003 and 2007, firmly establishing itself internationally as a leading brand in the sphere of creative city arts festivals. It generated more than Rs. 20 Crores of publicity for Jaipur and Rajasthan during this period as free editorial coverage. In 2006, JHIF became the first city festival anywhere in the world to receive endorsement from UNESCO as a ‘People’s Platform for Creativity and Sustainable Development’. Building on this earlier public investment and substantial brand equity, JHIF was re-established as an annual city festival in January 2010 through a ground-breaking partnership between the Government of Rajasthan and Jaipur Virasat Foundation. This partnership is an initiative of the state government’s proposed Rajasthan Heritage Authority, designed to promote heritage-based regional and urban development (Vikas) by conserving the state’s tangible and intangible heritage (Virasat). Over the next four years, JHIF will play a key role in the ‘Vikas & Virasat’ strategy by showcasing and disseminating some of its creative outcomes, reaching out to all sectors of society and helping to position Jaipur as a global, world-class heritage city.

Many of these people have migrated to Jaipur from other parts of Rajasthan. Each performance therefore includes cultural forms from across the state so that people can identify and share their roots. International artists also take part. This year it was the collaborative band ‘Dharohar’, featuring 8 musicians from Rajasthan alongside UK beatboxer, Jason Singh, and singer-songwriter, Bex Mather. By bringing events to underprivileged neighbourhoods, the Festival seeks to involve these communities in the ‘Vikas & Virasat’ movement. This year’s City Utsav performances at Ramganj Chouper (a largely Muslim area) and Vidhyadhar Nagar witnessed active participation from local community groups. Their enthusiasm and active participation helped to ensure that these events were hugely successful. Total audience attendance: c. 6000

If 10,000 people watched the programme throughout right till the end, you can imagine how wonderful it must have been!

But Jason Singh’s performance was remarkable – especially the sounds that he made with his mouth.” – Hukumchand Agarwal (CLG Convener, Ramganj Chouper)
