Ms. Neha Jha, Curator- MAP Festival 2017 – GNS

MUMBAI,  21 JULY,  2017  (GNS) : Neha Mishra Jha is the founder of Event Eyes Communications (EEC), which organises creative events inMumbai. A post graduate in Journalism & Mass Communications, Neha has more than 10 years of experience in writing and editing. Having worked with leading media houses and Packaging B2B events, it was only four years ago that she decided to make her passion- her job. Through EEC events, she gets a chance to meet creative people and explore creative ideas, which keep on inspiring her life and work. What if You Conference, curated by her, came up as one of the most popular college events of Mumbai.

MAP Festival is a close to heart event for her and she is all focused on raising art & culture awareness among young generation with it.

When she is not working on events, she writes! Neha has performed at various open mic sessions, judged school poetry competitions, published a poetry e-book ‘Moods & Musings’ and maintains a blog


Q) We have witnessed festival dedicated to only Music/Art/Poetry. Would like to know how different MAP is compared to other festivals?

Ans. When we talk about Music, Art and Poetry festivals there are many in Mumbai; but when we talk about festivals in Navi Mumbai, there isn’t any big festival which can be called as complete art festival. So the Objective behind organizing this festival is to give Navi Mumbai a chance to witness such festival and is meant for local people, college students, corporate etc.

Q) Do we have any celebrities coming to the event?

Ans. Yes, The event is likely witness huge participation from Navi Mumbai college students, Corporates, Bollywood personalities, Artists and Art lovers such as NMMC- Navi Mumbai Mayor, Shri Sudhakar Sonawane, Sushant Divgikar, Model, Actor, Singer,Mohinder Pratap Singh, Producer, Director,Jyoti Kapoor, Screenwriter, RakeshTiwari,Poet, Artist, Jingle Composer,Rouble Nagi, Mural Artist/Sculptor and Social Worker, Kartik Sharma, Percussionist and Didgeridoo Player, Dr. Radhakrishnan Pillai, Author, Founder-Chanakya’s Institute, Nupur Saraswat, Stage Performer, Anjali Kirpalani, Author, Writer, Sudeep Pagedar, Spoken-word Artist, Harshit Anurag, Founder- inkStation and many others.

Q) How many footfalls do you expect at the event?

Ans. Around 800 people. The auditorium can accommodate around 500 people and exhibit area around 300 people

Q) How did this idea generated?

Ans. We have been doing college event since 2013 and also we did lots of cultural events. The concept is not new as such but in Navi Mumbai it’s organised for the first time. Earlier we had done an event in Sophia College on Women Empowerment. Here, at MAP 2017 the topics are more or less the same on Music, Arts and Poetry; but we do it in a different way. The musicians if we talk about are good bamboo players, the garbage been players which are not so common. We try and bring uncommon aspects to the event. So the idea generated on basically Navi Mumbai not having any such event.

Q) Do we have any sponsors for the event?

Ans. Yes, we have Mahindra SSG, Women Empower India Association associated with the event. We also have Tata Tea as a gift sponsors.

Q) Will there be any entry fees?

Ans. The Entry is absolutely FREE but On-spot or online registration is a must.

Q) Tell us something more about the event?

Ans. MAP 2017 is a cultural good cause event. The festival will also have severaldiscussions including Music that Matters!
