About Jhankriti

───── ⋆⋅☆⋅⋆ ─────

The pursuit of discovering and nurturing talent by the World Forum for Art and Culture finds its splendid manifestation in a delightful art festival named – झंKriti (a fusion of “Jhankaar” and “Sanskriti”). While resembling a competition, it is more profoundly a celebration – a celebration of the myriad Indian classical art forms!

Jhankriti 2024 stands poised as a magnificent ode to Indian art and culture, a stage that echoes the Art of Living’s noble endeavor to foster cultural diversity and unity through artistic expression.

 Jhankriti 2024 offers a distinctive platform for budding artists, performers, and culture enthusiasts worldwide to display their talents, traditions, and creative flair. Our goal is to nurture and applaud emerging talents, providing avenues for their professional growth and interactions with the stalwarts of Indian arts.

Through Jhankriti, WFAC endeavors to craft a vibrant, empathetic, and inclusive arena where artists can submerge themselves in the tapestry of global cultures.
