The eclectic Bakeriya Space in Kottawa will once again be home to the Down Town Pulse arts festival, starting on February 25 and continuing until March 2.

The week long festival will feature a variety of artistic expression - including music, photography, graffiti art, stage dramas, film screenings, video art and more. The week will end with a concert featuring music of all genres like alternative, metal, classic rock, etc.

Hosted in a converted bakery, which boasts a safe haven for the creative mind. Although it is still referred to as the ‘bakeriya’, it has long been converted into a musical space where people used to come in, jam, and form their own bands. Following this, the stage was created slowly and thereafter, dramas were also staged.

Bakeriya is open to everyone to do their own art, by dedicating an entire week to showcase the creative talent of Sri Lanka, free of any form of discrimination or hidden agendas.

If you believe in a particular form of art and if it doesn’t harm anyone, this is a space open to you. The space built and shared by friends, and everyone works equally and gives their very best.
