Daricha Foundation

Daricha Foundation
Kolkata, India

Daricha Foundation’s mission is to document, disseminate, and promote public consciousness of India’s Folk and Tribal Art and Culture, starting with West Bengal. In bringing these forms alive to a wider global audience, we hope to not only connect people to the artists and their arts, but also to enable people to contribute towards the conservation and propagation of these arts. Daricha means “window,” a window that opens out to the public and the online world at large, providing instant access to knowledge on India’s folk and tribal arts and its practitioners; and also a window that connects the folk artist and artisan to the rest of the world. We also aim to help create sustainable and dignified means of livelihood for artists through activities that encourage and promote our intangible folk heritage.
