sandhiSandHI Center for the Ancient, New and the Developing Arts (SandHI)

An IIT Kharagpur initiative towards rediscovering the classical arts of India

Join us to make this initiative a success!

India is uniquely bestowed with its rich heritage in classical arts, spanning the domains of music, dance, fine arts, theatre, and other performing arts. Due to various socio-economic reasons, the traditional guru-sishya parampara through which these arts forms has been passed on from one generation to the next is unlikely to survive in the future. It is therefore important to discover a modern pedagogy of teaching and learning our traditional art forms, so that these may be appreciated, practiced, researched, and improvised upon by future generations.

IIT Kharagpur believes that this can be made possible through appropriate technological interventions that can make the teaching-learning experience interesting and innovative, while carefully preserving the core fundamentals of the traditional art forms. It is working towards the creation of a Center for the Ancient, New and the Developing Arts under the patronage of the Science and Heritage Initiative (SandHI).
 

The center has a funding requirement of 2.00 crore (approximately $310,200).
