Culture Monks (formerly called The Arshinagar Project) is a an interdisciplinary, cross cultural platform of artists, academicians & professionals, with diverse interest, practices, converging the intersection of art, culture & sustainability.
We are committed to aesthetics excellence in theatre & interdisciplinary art practices. We are also strongly motivated to address the issue of sustainability.
We are committed in forging new paradigms in the way art is produced, perceived and consumed. This we do through research & experimentation. The intrinsic value of work is of utmost importance to us and the honesty which artists bring into the work and the satisfaction they derive out of it is a non negotiable element in our productions and practices.
We are committed to offer our audience a deep, meaningful and engaging experience, which would contribute towards unlocking their critical faculties and unleashing their creative potentials.
We are committed to sustainability in context of ecology, economic prosperity & culture . We are constantly forging an inclusive dialogue through our art practices & productions on the several issues, thereby raising awareness, provoking and soliciting a response to displace inertia, in order to allow the ground conditions for new hopes and pathways to emerge, in response to the utopia of a sustainable world. We see the process as a constant defining of sustainability in its intercourse with the practical world.
We are cross cultural and interdisciplinary group of people who value diversity and experimentation, with the idea of creating a better understanding of each other, the differences and possibilities and and leading the way for new acts of creation, which reflect the contemporary truth of each other’s existence.
