It's a body dedicated to the propagation of art, tapping up all the multi-dimensional aspects of Indian culture, enveloping promotion, production, research and publication, teaching and academics. Finally consecrating its efforts to organising shows with a difference ie by connecting its efforts to social problems like education, health & hygiene, all so important in a social setup full of neglect and superstition even after 50 years of independence.
Its has always tried to work with a focus to identify and merge its efforts with issues related with social problems.
