An artist, impresario, curator, entrepreneur, producer, director and founder of the global cultural diplomacy organisation and multimedia brand, Liberatum, Pablo Ganguli has been described as a man possessing many talents. But he prefers not to be categorised and finds pleasure in creating cultural movements all over the world that empower people and he is passionate about experimenting with artistic ideas and bringing them into realisation. Since 2001 when he was 17, Pablo has created and established significant, multidisciplinary, diverse artistic and cultural endeavours, platforms and programmes globally to present new artistic work, promote creativity, education, the arts, cultural relations between nations and freedom of speech collaborating with some of the world’s leading minds, visionaries and pioneers.
Pablo is an active supporter of human rights and environmental causes. He directed the first Women’s Rights Conference in Papua New Guinea supported by the Papua New Guinean, Australian, United States and British governments. Since the age of eighteen, Pablo has masterminded multiple projects promoting human rights, youth issues and AIDS awareness in different parts of the world.
He was born in Calcutta in 1983.
“The enigmatic figure, Liberatum’s founder Pablo Ganguli, adds fine new shadings to the idea of the prodigy. I’m irresistibly reminded of another prodigy: Thomas Jerome Newton in The Man Who Fell to Earth. Of course, Bowie’s character was from another planet—though, after this weekend, I wouldn’t rule anywhere out as an optional point of origin for Ganguli.” - Style.com
“Wunderkind Pablo Ganguli is a mystery. Or even, as Winston Churchill said in an altogether different context, a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma.” - The Times
“Culture King”. - GQ
“The legendary Pablo Ganguli…” - The Guardian
“Proof that entrepreneurial skill can work as well for art as for commerce.” – Esquire
“Young Mr Ganguli has been organising these peripatetic productions for eight years now, and despite such tender years, somehow manages to persuade the great and the good of the arts to turn up and perform.” – Wallpaper
“Liberatum’s mercurial wunderkind founder, Pablo Ganguli, is in his 10th year of organising these events. His knack of shipping in a mob of jaw-dropping talent and finding the sponsors to pay for it all is, truly, incredible.” – The Sunday Times
“The rise of a phenomenon.” – Evening Standard
“If you had to define Pablo in one word you couldn’t but use the term "Renaissance”. His grandeur, the aim of his association (to get the most brilliant minds of England in touch with those of the rest of the world through events that puts them all together), the results: everything brings in mind the times of European cultural splendor, where a patron would reunite around him the cream of culture and where the coexistence of great minds created masterpieces capable of living forever. From Russia to Germany, from Morocco to Turkey (where, among the guests, there was also Vogue Italia’s editor in chief Franca Sozzani): Ganguli organizes, puts together, hosts events that, because of their dimension, can be defined the G20s of culture and that catch the attention of the international press.“ - Vogue Italia
