Bengaluru, India – December 9, 2022
Infosys Foundation, the philanthropic and CSR arm of Infosys, today announced that it inaugurated a week-long cultural festival in Chandigarh for the promotion of Indian visual and performing arts. The festival is presented jointly with Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan (BVB). The festival was inaugurated by Honorable Shri. Banwarilal Purohit, Governor, Punjab and UT Administrator.
Last month, a similar event was hosted in Mysuru that focused on the theme ‘Festivals of India’. Now, for the second such event being held in Chandigarh – from 9th December to 15th December 15, 2022, at Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Madhya Marg, Chandigarh – the event theme is 'Contemporary Art'. In the months to come, five more cultural festivals will be held across Hyderabad, Thiruvananthapuram, New Delhi, Mumbai, and Indore.
Krish Shankar, Trustee, Infosys Foundation, said, “Cultural richness and diversity are woven into the fabric of India’s identity. At Infosys Foundation, we believe that it is important that we do not let this corrode with time. Our efforts towards promoting and preserving culture are aimed at encouraging artists to come to the forefront and showcase their work, thereby contributing to keep art and culture alive in this ever-evolving world.”
H.N. Suresh, Director, Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Bengaluru Kendra, said, “Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan has focused on promoting education, art, and culture in myriad ways since its inception. We acknowledge and appreciate the support of the Infosys Foundation in keeping our cultural gems alive and encouraging artists springing from diverse backgrounds to take delight and pride in their work. We hope to strengthen this collaboration to expand its purview and reach more artists.”
Founded in 1938, Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan’s objective is to promote and propagate Indian values and culture spanning literature, music, dance, and other fine arts. Today, it has grown into a multifaceted, worldwide organization.
Established in 1996, the Infosys Foundation supports programs in the areas of education, rural development, healthcare, women empowerment, arts and culture, and destitute care.
