About the event
Over centuries, many artists have used Art as a vehicle for exploring questions about identity.
Even though our ethnic heritage or sexuality informs who we are, it is not our identity.
Identity is fluid rather than fixed. Our personal experiences as well as the socio political realities of our time can revise how we see ourselves or how others perceive us. As both individuals and members of communities, we keep reconsidering our place in the world, wherever we live.
“ASMI" the Sanskrit word, means “I AM”. It is about “Oneself”. It is about “Identity”.
“ASMI” by Anandi Arts Foundation is an Indian Classical Dance & Music festival on the 29th and 30th of September 2018, at Ravindra Kalakshetra, Bangalore.

Sikkil Gurucharan and Anil srinivasan will present contemporary carnatic music.

emotional growth. It also imparts discipline, confidence and helps

Anandi Arts Foundation was started in the year
2016 by Mrs. Vandana Supriya Kasaravalli.
The antecedence of Anandi Arts Foundation was the ‘Anandi
School of Dance’. It was started in the year 2013, in an attempt to
spread Odissi and extend its reach in the southern parts of india.
Soon, this school became a learning arena for children and adults
The harbinger for Anandi Arts Foundation was, when the girls
from a Government School in RMV 2nd stage, Bangalore, expressed
their desire to learn Odissi. Vandana Supriya saw this as an
opportunity to make dance/arts accessible to the all, regardless of
their social or economic status.
Anandi Arts Foundation was started with the mission towards
empowering girls from Government Schools and lesser privileged
backgrounds through Art forms like Dance and Music. Presently
there are about 125 girls, who are learning Odissi for free.
In the years to come, "Anandi Arts foundation" hopes to turn into
a temple for artistic expressions.
