Who would think a world-class choir could be put together by children from the most disadvantaged communities? The Nalanda Way Choir project is proof that it can be. Initiated first across Chennai (2015) and then Delhi (2018), this project taps into the transformative powers of music to help children emerge as more confident, hopeful and skillful. Both the Chennai Children’s Choir & Delhi Children’s Choir have performed widely, alongside many celebrated musicians and across well-known venues.
The Kiran Nadar Museum of Art
Established by art collector Kiran Nadar in 2010, the Kiran Nadar Museum of Art (KNMA) is the first privately-funded museum of art exhibiting modern and contemporary works from India and the sub-continent. Located in New Delhi NCR, India’s capital city, KNMA hosts an ever-growing collection of artworks that both highlights a magnificent generation of 20th-century Indian painters from the post- Independence decades and engages with the different art practices of younger contemporaries.
Sponsored by the Shiv Nadar Foundation, KNMA is focused on bridging the gap between art and the public and fostering a museum-going culture in India. KNMA aims to become a place for confluence, dialogue and collaboration through its curatorial initiatives and exhibitions, school and college workshops, art appreciation discourses, symposiums, and public programs.
