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.

We are thrilled to announce we've won two grants from California Arts Council - An Artists in Communities grant to support "Precious Scars" - a new artistic presentation led by Ray M. Furuta sharing the experiences of Japanese-Americans interned during World War II and their legacies of hope and resilience; An organizational development grant to help us develop a strategic plan for growth and sustainability! We are grateful.

So proud of Team Sangam for all the hard work and dedication it takes to deliver the kind of impact it takes to win State-level grants. We are grateful to the many friends, donors, grantors and partners who make this possible.

"You hit the enemy from all sides"

What a privilege to hear the truly inspiring Chuck Alexander speak about the many fronts of the African American struggle against racism. He was at San Jose State in 1955 well before the legendary Olympians Tommie Smith & John Carlos. Here he draws parallels between the fight against racism and a wolf pack's approach to hunting prey. Some wolves are assigned to butt, the others to the side.. While he and his fellow Black students at SJSU believed in changing the system from the inside, others took a different approach.

Join us on June 22nd for a music & multimedia performance of Love, Loss, Life - inspired by stories like these. Tickets at tinyurl.com/mosaic3L
