About Pomegranate's WeCreate Sustainability Festival: In 2019, Pomegranate spearheaded a unique festival centred around arts and sustainability across schools in Mumbai. The festival included a theatre production staged at the NCPA and a Battle of the Bands music contest at the Royal opera House. An anthology of student works - Poets for Sustainability was released at the festival featuring poems by young adults. The festival was held in partnership with the Bombay Canteen restaurant, Art Deco Mumbai, Smart Commute and a senior team from the Industrial Design Center, IIT Bombay. In 2020 the festival is scheduled after June 2021 and will be entirely online with international collaborators and online performances and workshops.
