  • Mission statement

    SAA-uk was established in Leeds, England in June 1997 as a charity and a company limited by guarantee. The mission of the organisation is “to promote engagement with traditional and contemporary South Asian arts. ” Since 1997, SAA-uk has been delivering a diverse range of programmes and participatory activities for Children, Young people and their respective families through education programmes, concerts and investing in South Asian arts development.

    We believe that the arts have the power to transform and enable individuals to transcend boundaries and limitations, and that engagement in the arts empowers children and young people to contribute positively to society. We also believe South Asian culture is integral to the UK’s cutural diversity and deserves to be championed. SAA-uk is committed to its regional base in Yorkshire and continues to grow and work in partnership with organisations and community groups in order to provide opportunities for all members of society to participate in the arts.
