For the last two years the National School of Drama has been associated with two other cultural festivals. Theses are the Delhi International Arts Festival – a cultural extravaganza of dance, music, theatre, bands, films, exhibitions and so on; and OCTAVE, a cultural festival organized by the Ministry of Culture in collaboration with the Zonal Cultural Centres (ZCCs), in which it was one of the nodal agencies involved.
The first of these, the Delhi International Arts Festival was held in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture & Tourism GOI, and was co-partnered by several institutions and organizations that made up the core of the cultural spirit of the country at large and of the city in particular. These included the Sangeet Natak Akademi, Sahitya Akademi, IGNCA, ITDC, Madhyotari, Directorate of Film Festivals, NEZCC Dimapur, TRIFED, FSI, ICCR, Lalit Kala Akademi and the National School of Drama. In case of the latter, OCTAVE, a Committee constituted by the School was responsible for selecting the plays participating in the festival and thereby contributing to the dramatic and theatrical component in both years.
