EQUATOR FESTIVAL was set up by ShivaNova in 2007 as a promotional arm of the company. It promotes and tours high quality international world musicians and dancers from all over the world in its series of concerts and events in London as well as in areas of Kent. It is also looking to bring artists from other countries to tour in the UK and also for artists and performing groups here to tour in other parts of the world.
Shiva Nova with its promotional organisation Equator Festival have been engaging with and working with culturally diverse and high quality culturally diverse artist, performers and community groups for over 3 decades. We are one of the very few culturally diverse-led organisations in Kent, and we have been commissioning and developing new work and giving composers, musicians, dancers and artists the opportunity to perform in a range of venues and festivals in Kent and work with different cultural communities.
