Infosys Foundation, Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan promote Indian art
Bengaluru: Infosys Foundation, the company’s charitable and CSR arm, has announced that it has partnered with Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan (BVB) to promote Indian performing and visual arts across the country. By working together, Infosys Foundation and BVB will give over 4,500 recipients a platform, including 3,000 artists from underserved communities, in order to preserve traditional folk and classical art forms.
Through a series of events over the course of three years, including weeklong festivals, camps, exhibitions, and publications, this collaboration aims to preserve India’s visual and performing arts. The partnership would develop and foster solidarity among India’s artists by providing a forum for them to showcase their skills and take pride in who they are.
A week-long cultural event will get things started in Mysuru on November 4 and run through November 10 from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm at Kalamandira, Vinoba Road. The purpose of this event is to showcase various Indian art forms on one platform. In New Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Thiruvananthapuram, Indore, and Chandigarh, more events are planned.
“Promoting art and culture has always been a focal area for us at Infosys Foundation,” stated Krish Shankar, Trustee, Infosys Foundation. Even in these quick-changing times, we think that they contribute to the fabric of a country’s identity. We are excited to collaborate with Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan to inspire artists from all backgrounds to showcase their abilities and prevent various art forms from fading into obscurity.
