Art and Socio-cultural Activities
Sanskriti had been regularly conducting Lectures, Seminars and Symposiums on relevant, contemporary issues ever since its formation. The organization have always ensured the participation of Socio-cultural activists of repute, leading literary figures and academic pundits to lead such activities. Further, we have focused on inviting and promoting talented artists who perform and propagate Kerala’s traditional dance, music forms and folk lore arts which face the threat of extinction. By doing so, Sanskriti intends to promote such artists and art forms amongst the expatriate community members and their family members.

Sanskriti always had clear perception in regards to the direction that it should adopt so as to serve the community in an effectively different way.
This is precisely the reason why it chose to bring in socio-cultural activists and literary activists from India to hold Seminars and Symposiums on relevant, contemporary issues that concern Indian Community.
