Programming Strands

In 2017/18 Kala Sangam launched three new public facing strands of activity. Focussing primarily on music and dance, all artistic, education and outreach activity delivered by Kala Sangam now aligns with at least one of these strands- be that work presented in the Ganges Theatre, the artists we support (and the work they create), our schools offer, or any of the other ways in which we deliver our work.

This Is Bradford

Putting Kala Sangam at the heart of arts delivery in the city, we offer rehearsal space, development support and performance opportunities to local artists and companies. We also bring work to Bradford which addresses societal issues for the city or is relevant to one of its many communities.

South Asia Now

We programme work by South Asian artists/organisations or that showcases art forms from South Asia. A priority is placed on presenting work which develops the art form and/or is created by British people of South Asian descent.

British Diversity

To ensure we are at the forefront of what it means to live in modern Britain we support the creation of work which looks at cultural heritage in the context of modern Britain or is actively diversity focussed. This strand also covers work that fuses together different artforms, styles and cultures.
