Be a part of one – world family

The World Forum for Culture & Arts has been founded by those who want to see a world united through art. It has been conceived by The Art of Living, an organization that has brought people of different cultures, religions, and nationalities together with art performed on massive scales. A recent example includes the 2016 World Culture Festival where thousands of artists from all over the world brought millions together to celebrate and dream for a more peaceful co-existence. The Art of Living’s efforts to bring artists together through the World Culture Forum is one of its many initiatives to uplift human life and make life a celebration. Some of the other initiatives include conducting stress-relief programs, reviving rivers, providing free education, and empowering farmers – causes which you can support with your art.

Artists share their experiences

“It was an honor to perform Kathak under the guidance of Pandit Birju Maharaj and team. So grateful for this opportunity when you find an audience of more than 2.5 lakh applauding you.”
Manita Gauba, 38
“It was like a dream to perform on that magnificent floating stage, in front of such a mammoth audience. I was a part of Cosmic Rythym - a yoga dance, at the World Culture Festival 2016. There were many hitches before going in for the finale. But, in the finale, it was perfect.”
Jayashree Prabhakar, 50
“We had started practicing ahead of the grand event. The entire Gujarat team was preparing for traditional Garba. It was a visual treat to see 1500 Garba dancers performing together. The performance was received with a standing ovation. I loved it.”
Ronak Pala, 32
