2009, Mumbai India


Sep 04 - Sep 07

The theme for the year 2009 was 'The New Norm - Let's try something different'. Kyoorius Designyatra in its fourth year made some changes, one of them being a change in venue. The earlier DesignYatra fests were held in Goa over a period of three to four days. In 2009 though, Mumbai had been the chosen venue.
