About


The TVH Cultural Fest is a celebration of creativity that sprouts during these testing times of global pandemic. Not always do we get time or opportunities to explore our creative penchant. For this very purpose, TVH has come up with a cultural festival that allows submission of photography, creatives/posters, written and video submissions.

Creativity during these dark times is how we all can bring ourselves to deal with the reality of the lockdown, it becomes an outlet for us to express how we feel, or put forth messages to our society in an on-point manner. It’s important that we journal (via any medium or form of art) all that spectrum of emotions.

Team TVH has come up with this cultural fest to give a platform to all these forms of creativity. Create @ Home aims to help aspirants achieve their dreams of having their work posted on an established platform.

The idea is simple, stay home, stay safe, and use your spare time to create.
