Subrang Arts is a leading South Asian Arts organisation established in 1989 - a registered charity, not for profit voluntary organisation in the Borough of Sutton and Croydon. Its objective is to foster and promote the maintenance, improvement and development of artistic taste and the knowledge, understanding and appreciation of South Asian Arts through Dance, Music, Languages, Arts Festivals, Exhibitions and other Cultural activities. It began humbly with a few die hard members and has now grown to 200 with a pan-indian curriculum that reflects the cultural diversity
of a vast country rich with culture, heritage and traditions of ancient past. It aims to present an annual series of Dance and Drama through an educational programme for young people as well as adults which will nurture home grown budding and very enthusiastic talent and foster an awareness, appreciation and understanding of the rich Indian cultural heritage.
Its latest production ‘Meera’ is a theatrical extravaganza involving a caste of more than fifty participants of all age groups. The production is touring nationally and has acclaimed rave reviews.
This year it is embarking on a very ambitious project -- An overseas tour which will take the production across the Atlantic to USA and perform at two very prestigious venues in Atlanta and Carolina. This will take Subrang Arts to a new level from its humble beginnings and will go long way to promote cross cultural programmes, build ties and foster new relations with their counterparts across the pond. Subrang aims to develop a financial support base to sustain and achieve a more ambitious goal - a re-defining of identity and a move to a multi-cultural platform from a quintessentially Indian, the growth of an artistic vision. We require £5,000 for the USA project taking place this July 2011! All the participants of all age groups are raising funds through various activities,so whatever you donate will help. The project costs include IT support for the stage special effects, stage props, cargo costs and subsiding accommodation/travel costs for the participants
