It is with great satisfaction that we inform you about the opening of the Duttapukur Arts Center (Duttapukur Silpo Charcha Kendra) empowered by Chhandayan. Amidst these difficult times for the artists, Duttapukur in North 24 Parganas of West Bengal, India is moving forward with the establishment of the Duttapukur Arts Center (Duttapukur Silpo Charcha Kendra) with its inauguration set on the 11th October, 2020, 5 pm at the Bulbul Community Hall in Duttapukur. The inaugural function will include a cultural program featuring local artists. All safety protocols will be properly observed in this small gathering of invited guests only.
Duttapukur Arts Center (Duttapukur Silpo Charcha Kendra) is a collaborative effort of Chhandayan under the leadership of veteran musician Pt. Samir Chatterjee, his teammates in the Virtual Office and the artists and arts connoisseurs from Duttapukur, Bira, Barasat, Bamungachhi and their vicinity. The Arts Center aims to bring the local artist community under one roof, by creating a self-sustaining ecosystem right from grooming new talents, showcasing their arts to generating financial stability for the coterie of artists, so that they can withstand future calamities without external help.
Team Chhandayan appreciates the help and cooperation of the local community to bring this aim into fruition and hopes to create multiple self-sustaining Art Centers across the artistic and cultural state of West Bengal.
With earnest request for your prayer, blessing, help and support towards the accomplishment of our mission.
Chhandayan Center for Indian Music
