About Cinnamon Colomboscope

Cinnamon Colomboscope is a multidisciplinary contemporary arts festival organized by Cinnamon hotels and resorts along with John Keells Foundation. The festival was founded by EUNIC Sri Lanka (Goethe-Institut, British Council and Alliance Française de Kotte). Over the past 4 years the festival has consistently built a platform for contemporary art in Sri Lanka.

Now in its fifth edition, this year for the first time the festival is being organised by a local independent team. The Festival supports local and international artists to create engaging, daring work that connects with the world alongside the festival theme, hosted in ‘non traditional’ venues. It aims to mobilize communities in Colombo for over a week-long period to engage and interact with thought provoking creative processes. In keeping with Cinnamon Colomboscope’s experimental and innovative trajectory, this year the festival will foreground the environment and its intersection with arts, culture and innovation.
