Sunday soul sante : Hyderabad has cherished art and craft while celebrating newer forms and styles from all over the world. There are a lot of young & creative artists here but fewer platforms for them to reach out to potential consumers in an informal setting. We’ve decided to create a platform that celebrates this spirit and Sunday Soul Sante already being hugely popular in Bangalore, was our answer.
Sunday Soul Sante is a concept that was first created in Bangalore in 2010 with an aim to create a platform for visual and performing arts. The event bridges the entertainment and retail space by bringing people, products, artisans and performers together. It is a day-long Sunday Flea Market with a fun carnival vibe offering wholesome entertainment. The artists/craftsman is provided a bigger platform to reach out to a larger clientele irrespective of the form of art and the size of their enterprise.
The city’s first Sunday Soul Sante is set on 22nd January, 2017 at Hitex & will have editions following it throughout the year. It will showcase the best in terms of Art and all its forms, a variety of Crafts, Food, Fashion, Accessories, and Pottery & Entertainment. Right from this first edition, we intend for it to capture the creative energy and spirit of Hyderabad.
Fun, Flea, Food, Music!
The idea for bringing SSS to Hyderabad spawned from the need for an interesting event providing entertainment of the whole family at the same time.
This Soul Sante has a host of pop-up stalls that celebrate the meeting point of fashion and art, décor, food and a line-up of exciting performances by artists.
Celebrating the craft and the craftsmen!
Hyderabad’s edition of Sante (Market) features over a 100 pop-stalls for artists and craftsmen. Out of which, 15 stalls are given, free of cost, to Telangana-based weavers/ craftsmen through Bhongir Handloom Weavers Cooperative Society Ltd & non-profit organization, UMEED.
UMEED works to empower women from slums of Hyderabad, providing them skills/ knowledge enabling them to take better control of their livelihood. Another featured stall is Ishma Handcrafted Accessories which works with Banjara women from nearby villages to create unique jewelry using crafts that have been disappearing recently.
‘Arts and artists’ are the heart of this Soul Sante! Without diverting from the central theme, we offer the following to every attendee to our event.
There are over 100 stalls set to showcase fashion, home furnishings, accessories, plants, furniture, art, photography, food and much more from all over India.
The entertainment will enthrall everyone with city-based Threeory, Niel Braganza & Arunaja from Bangalore performing live. Also the DJ will ensure that the dance lovers groove and sway to the mixes.
The event has a zone dedicated to fun activities carnival-themed stalls for children. One of the key elements of this is the Hindu’s “Young World” initiative that has big plans for children and young adults.
Food lovers are in for a treat of lifetime at this Sante. There will be a wide variety of food stalls that include Hyderabadi cuisine as well a range of interesting cuisines that are both indigenous and from across the globe. We have given a preference to home chefs and smaller establishments over more established restaurants in order to promote the up and coming chefs.
The first ever Soul Sante was held on 19th of September, 2010 at Palace Grounds, Bangalore. And since then there have been many editions of the Sante across B’lore and Pune.
The day long Sante showcases the best of the host city in Arts, Crafts, Food, Fashion, Accessories, Pottery & Entertainment. The event has generated a large fan base and usually has over 18000 + people attend each time it is held. Read more
