Where Have All the Flowers Gone?

A three-day long festival of music and arts with a view to respect, honour and protect the environment, Where Have All the Flowers Gone? has been the first of its kind in Manipur. This is the second edition. This year, the venue is at the Santhei Natural Park, Andro in Imphal East. This festival is inspired by music and environmental activism of the late American folk singer Pete Seeger who passed away in January 2014. This will be his 96th birth anniversary and we wish to commemorate the day by carrying out activities dear to his heart and fundamental to the survival of our environment. Starting from May Day i.e 1st May there will be tree plantation drives in various places of Imphal and Andro.

Where Have All the Flowers Gone? will also have painting competition for school students, performances, photo exhibition by Wildlife and Habitat Protection Society (WAHPS) and art fair that consists of art installation work, painting exhibition, etc. Indian singer/songwriter Susmit Bose, who has been a friend of late Pete Seeger, will spearhead the musical evening.
