For art enthusiasts, who were left disappointed after the closure of Epicentre in 2017, known for hosting music, dance and theatre festivals, Kala Gram is likely to fill the existing cultural void.

The Gurugram district administration, in a unique initiative to promote cultural activities in the city, is planning to set up Kala Gram, a society for arts education that will run weekly classes for various art forms and give artists a platform to showcase their talent.

“Kala Gram’s vision is to encourage residents of Gurugram to appreciate various art forms,” said Amit Khatri, deputy commissioner on Monday, while addressing the first meeting on Kala Gram with government officials. “The motive behind setting up such a society is to give people a chance to showcase their talent and highlight the art and culture of the state,” said Khatri in an official press statement released by the district administration.

Swati Rajmohan, CMGGA, said, “The registration process for the society has already begun. However, we are figuring out a way to run the art institute. We are still in the initial phase.”

Mahesh Gupta, secretary, Red Cross Society, also a member of Kala Gram society, said, “We are open to taking assistance from people who are culturally active and are running their own academies of dance, music or theatre. There are open-air theatres in the city under Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG), where activities will initially take place,” said Gupta.
