The Pune Biennale, a joint venture between Pune Municipal Corporation and Bharati Vidyapeeth, is a grass-roots movement that aims at promoting and showcasing creative talent from various visual media of expression including visual arts, architecture, and photography. Initiated by Bharati Vidyapeeth’s College of Architecture, Pune, the emphasis in Pune Biennale is on making art more public and accessible in its all possible manifestations.
The theme of the Second Edition of Pune Biennale is “Heritage- Yours and Mine”. To be celebrated from 6- 15 February 2015, this movement takes a multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary approach to emphasize ‘Heritage’ as a pressing concern in the world cultural map. In particular it strives to restore, rehabilitate, and refine our combined cultural heritage in order to enhance our cultural identity.

The inaugural Pune Biennale took place in January 2013 around the theme of “Celebrating hills” and succeeded in bringing close to one lakh citizens to exhibitions and activities which were held over ten days at eight different venues across Pune (for more visit 2013 biennale).
