Different sessions of the festival will lead-up to a joint publication by Maharana of Mewar Charitable Foundation (MMCF) and UNESCO New Delhi. This publication, a compendium of best practices in conservation of built and intangible heritage, will record some of the benchmark examples for experiencing and continuing living heritage and will provide guidelines for living heritage spaces and areas across Asia.

Each day of the festival will address these questions within the ambit of a different subtheme – intangible heritage vis-à-vis (i) monuments, museums, and historical sites, (ii) temples, and (iii) public spaces. Each day’s performances, panel discussions, workshops, and heritage walks/trails will be inter-linked by one of the subthemes and set in venues that are themselves iconic living monuments, temples, and public spaces in the city of Udaipur.
