About

Aai Shree Foundation (ASF) is a not-for-profit organization that supports Arts and Culture, Good Governance, Sustainability, Education, Rural Development, Healthcare, and Destitute Care.

We are proud and forever grateful of our Ancient Civilisation, Rich Diverse Culture and Upholding our Values through Arts and Cultures.

We were taught that our arts carry the spirit of the people. It is through art that we know ourselves, it is through art that we will go forward into the world and it is through art that our cultures will be remembered. The arts and culture represent one of the few areas in our society where people can come together to share an experience even if they see the world in radically different ways. We believe that art and culture have the power to ignite change for the better!

Vision:

Transforming community through Arts, enable and lead with respect for intrinsic dignity of all people. Make Art & Culture the Prime Investment Destination for the Country.

Mission:

We work with artists and communities to promote and nurture diverse forms of artistic expression, revitalization, appreciation, and perpetuation of Arts and Cultures across India. In tandem with the National Development Agenda, spearhead programs that harness the human resource potential within the cultural and creative sector.

We Believe in Transforming Community through ARTS

Art can change the world. Art is a form of communication that is more powerful and more real to any human being; it changes people’s opinions, style, ideas, and even sometimes people’s way of living.  It may not change the world from one day to another but if one person can see the beauty behind someone expressing themselves with their own definition of art it can really change a person to see the world differently and feel the warmth and happiness of it all.

Art can connect you to your senses, body, and mind. It can make the world ‘felt’. And this ‘felt’ feeling may spur thinking, engagement, and even action. Most of us know the feeling of being moved by a work of art, whether it is a song, a play, a poem, a novel, a painting, or a spatio-temporal experiment. When we are touched, we are moved; we are transported to a new place that is, nevertheless, strongly rooted in a physical experience, in our bodies. We become aware of a feeling that may not be unfamiliar to us but which we did not actively focus on before. This transformative experience is what art is constantly seeking.

Ancient art forms can be preserved and passed down from generation to generation by showcasing the skills of artists. Our Foundation promotes traditional arts, music, dances and crafts; identifies underprivileged artists who don’t have access to relevant influential people for any assistance. These include writers, painters, poets, and musicians from different walks of life. Through cultural arts, we aim to create the foundations and environment to nurture people’s creativity and expressive power, to create a spiritually rich society that can accept emotional connections, mutual understanding and respect, and diversity, with the aim of supporting the activities of cultural artists, to pass on and develop the cultures and its various art forms that have been cultivated, and to promote the imagination of new and original cultural art.
