About Kolkata Canvas

Kolkata Canvas started as an online platform in 2010 aiming to promulgate the diverse and rich cultures of West Bengal. In its early days the portal served as a blog with articles on music, theatre, cinema and travel. From mid 2015 we concentrated solely on the study, archive and propagation of performing arts, notably theatre.

For the last five years we have been extensively working on the diverse aspects of performing arts and its varied practices and their benefits on our individual lives and the society at large. We have had a twofold approach that of Research and Archive and of Training and Expression. Over the years we have introduced two e-magazines and had two theatrical productions.

The journey so far has been a wonderful learning curve and has provided an excellent insight into organizing the work ahead. It has helped us to slowly establish a broader connect on our journey to create a platform for creative expressions and exchange. We intend to cover more domains as we progress on our vision to create global creative confluence.

Our Goals:

Kolkata Canvas is a platform dedicated to the study, archive and promulgation of performing arts, literature, music and cinema. We intend to present creative expressions in performances and productions in an interesting format to a diverse audience thus encouraging a better creative exchange. We also focus on promoting new talents from diverse fields and believe in extending the benefits of various performing arts in our lives and professions. We shall soon be into producing plays, dance performances, documentaries and short films and will organize regular seminars, literary exchanges, reading sessions and more. So, let us join our hands together an embark on a creative journey connecting more people as we move ahead.
