Cinnamon Colomboscope is a contemporary and multidisciplinary arts festival that takes place in Colombo, Sri Lanka. Originally started in 2013, as a joint initiative between Alliance Française de Kotte, the British Council and the Goethe-Institut, the festival has continued to attract support and participation from Sri Lankan artists as well as those from Europe. Over the past two years, the festival’s reputation has spread beyond these two locales, and more artists from the South Asia region and other parts of the world have wanted to be part of the event.
The festival has always had a legacy of challenging how we view art, by presenting works in venues that are not traditional exhibition or performance spaces. The idea of using art to draw audiences into different parts of the city is the trademark of the Colomboscope festival.
The event is organised by EUNIC Sri Lanka comprising the Goethe-Institut, British Council and Alliance Française de Kotte. Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts is the festival's title sponsor for the second consecutive year.
This year, the festival is held in venue partnership with the Sri Lanka Postal Department, the Ministry of Science and Technology, Sri Lanka and the Ministry of Post, Postal Services & Muslim Religious Affairs, Sri Lanka.
