Kaveri Kalavardhini Prayogshala 14-15

The name ‘Kaveri’ in Kaveri Group of Institutes is inspired by the sanctity and revered status of the
River Kaveri, from the state of Karnataka. Kalakshetra literally means a holy place of arts. At the
Kannada Sangha and Kaveri Group of Institutes, Art and Culture have always played a central and key
role.
Vision Statement
To ensure that the Arts, in all their diversity and plurality, are nurtured and valued because they enrich
individual and public life and are critical to envisioning the future of our society.
Mission Statement
To enrich the practice and knowledge of, widen public access to, and strengthen capacities in the arts
in India, through arts education, research and innovative performance.
Purpose:
The broad purpose of Kaveri Kalakshetra is to create profound opportunities for connecting the
community to artists, in both education and performance, so that all may share life-long opportunities
to deepen their cultural knowledge, enrich their lives, and expand their understanding and compassion
for the world through the universal language of the Arts.
Beliefs and Values:
The Arts are indispensable to individual and social well being. Arts play an important role in shaping
the beliefs and values of individuals and society as a whole. We believe that the access to arts should
be easily available to anyone without prejudice to class, language, caste, religion or gender since Arts
are truly liberating and encourage the flowering of the human spirit. The role of Arts becomes even
more vital in an increasingly technological world in which our mind space is crowded by intelligent
gadgets, electronic and social media and a self centered ‘modern’ world offering a plethora of
personalized entertainment options. We see the significance and value of Arts as a de-stressing
therapeutic activity/medium for the future generations who shall inhabit an increasingly lonely world.
At Kaveri Kalakshetra, we believe that every child/individual has an inherent potential and a dormant
artistic bent of mind since birth. However in today’s competitive academic/career rat-race, such
hidden talent for the arts and aesthetic faculties lie mostly suppressed, unexplored and unexpressed
due to lack of interest and/or time on the part of educators, parents as well as the lack of opportunities
and safe creative spaces. The emerging generations are intelligent, curious, creative and sharp. We feel
it is our duty to provide them with a safe and free-thinking atmosphere enriched by artistic
experiences.
