INSPIRATIONS brings rare treats from South Asia to Toronto’s multicultural, English-speaking audiences. Hear music and poetry that fuses the East and West; meet distinguished recipients of the Inspirations Spirit Awards; and watch ‘A Woman’s Quest’ - a timeless play about love and justice written in colonial India. Live music, narration, and classical Indian choreography come together in this stunning event. Presented in English and with translations.

Inspirations 2013 is inspired by Rabindranath Tagore who became the first Asian and non-European Nobel Laureate in 1913. The fundamental equality between all human beings, the need to resist all forms of injustice, and the infinite possibility of deepening our understanding of each other within and beyond borders – these are some of Tagore's values. He saw the arts as a powerful medium of social change which enables us to come together – irrespective of language, identity, race, nationality or religion.
