Kala Sangam: Crafting Traditions at Indian Heritage Centre, Singapore

 

[1]

Inspired by the success of the crafts demonstration platform, the Indian Heritage Centre and the High Commission of India in Singapore launched a new initiative, Kala Sangam (A Melange of Arts and Crafts) in June 2018. This country-to-country collaboration seeks to bring twelve traditional craftspeople from India to the center every year, over a five-year period, to demonstrate their crafts and interact with the local community. This initiative was made possible by a generous donation from Mr. Ravi Thakran and serves as a testament to the strong cultural relations between the countries.
