Sangam Arts – Connecting Cultures

Our mission is to help create and nurture strong intercultural connections between the many vibrant cultures in the US through visual and performing arts

About Us

Founded in 2013, Sangam Arts is a 501(c)3 non-profit that provides an innovative platform for artists from diverse backgrounds to come together to collaborate and co-create world-class multicultural music and dance performances. Using a wide range of cultural and artistic expressions from Folklorico and Tap to Kathak and Hula, our presentations are carefully curated to that help us see our common humanity while allowing us to celebrate the traits that make us unique.

Our unique approach and reputation for quality programming have helped us gain support grantors and foundations such as Office of Cultural Affairs, City of San Jose, SVCreates and Knight Foundation.

Mosaic America

As our society becomes increasingly diverse culturally, we need a new model of social integration. One that allows people from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds to come together as Americans while retaining our unique cultural identity.  Mosaic America is a grassroots initiative launched by Sangam Arts to help strengthen our rapidly diversifying communities through collaborative, multicultural arts.

By launching local initiatives, like Mosaic Silicon Valley, we help create performances that reflect the unique cultural and artistic makeup of communities.

Sangam Arts

Where do you call home?

Is it the place you live now or a place you spent your childhood?

Home is not always a safe place. Some choose to leave the place of their forefathers because of political or economic challenges; while others stay and work toward change.

You may call the Santa Clara Valley “home”. You may have spent your childhood playing hide and seek with friends amongst the tall mustard plants that filled the ground between apricot trees in the spring or you may have stepped off a plane at SFO; either way, this valley is your home.

Tell us “What makes a place, a “home"?

And join us for Love, Loss, Life - A Multimedia & Music Performance, about the shared struggles, joys, and triumphs of the people of the Valley of the Heart's Delights and the transformation of cultural boundaries that comes from cross-cultural understanding and shared experience.
