Kala Sangam is a leading south Asian Arts Centre in Bradford.
In Sanskrit, Kala means arts and Sangam, a meeting point. Sangam also refers to a confluence of rivers, such as the Triveni Sangam in North India, where three rivers come together. Kala Sangam exists to bring people together through the arts.
Kala Sangam aims to increase understanding and appreciation of the cultural traditions of South Asia, whilst improving awareness of racial, cultural and social issues. Established in 1993, the company works with local and international artists to create and deliver collaborative work through performances, classes, workshops, and training courses. While most of the company’s work takes place in West Yorkshire, its touring programme and outreach activities extend across the UK and internationally.
The company delivers art and cultural activities that bring communities together by promoting understanding and mutual respect. Kala Sangam values diversity, ensuring fair access to services so that people of all ages and abilities can enjoy and participate in the arts. This work ties in with and is guided by the cultural vision for Bradford, which embraces the city’s rich cultural heritage as a legacy for the future generations.
