The organisers of the festival have this to say: “The festival seeks to provide positive spaces for people from all walks of life (young and old) to assert a more constructive view of themselves and their cultures by showcasing the various customs of how multiple births are celebrated in their families and communities as part of the drive for respect and understanding in the world. In celebrating the wonders of multiple births we are actually celebrating the survival of the human race.”
