In other words, our aim is “to Unite Hearts through Arts,” by giving our audiences memorable, inspirational experiences in Indian Arts through a year round programme of performances, tours, commissions, festivals and innovative educational projects which create and provide sustained career development opportunities for artists learning and practising different genres of Indian Arts.
In recent years our educational projects have multiplied considerably, and our aim has been to inter-connect all our projects so that the maximum possible impact is made to the lives of our audiences and participants. In recent years, the Trust has created international partnerships and projects to further strengthen and widen our work, resulting in some exciting cross-cultural collaborations.
