Art Gyan is a web-based arts education platform striving to make the arts accessible and affordable to students across India and the world, while simultaneously providing professional artistes with a structured platform to teach a wide network of learners.
We envision Art Gyan as a unique education portal featuring talented artistes who offer engaging courses to students of all age groups and diverse backgrounds. We want to generate opportunities in the arts for teachers and students alike, keeping an ‘art for all’ objective in place. Given that the pandemic has brought the arts industry, along with many others, to a complete halt, we genuinely hope this platform will benefit professional artists and help them to sustain themselves monetarily while allowing learners who have been hit by the ongoing crisis to begin or continue their arts education at affordable prices.
Currently, the platform features courses by over 40 artists across 7 streams - art, music, dance, theatre, wellness, food, Literature, with a variety of sub-streams under each from hindustani vocals to folk instruments and from baking to dance therapy. The website is LIVE, and classes will be launched shortly on completion of the testing phase. The aim is to offer exclusive courses that empower the audience and artistes equally. We have the likes of Sonam Kalra, Amit Kilam, Chef Picu, Pt. Sukhdev Mishra, Shambhunath Bhattacharjee Karan Khosla, Nazm Kaur, Anirban Ghosh (Baan), Gilles Chuyen, Sukriti Sen, Chugge Khan, etc!

WAYS OF SEEING THEATRE
A session with a focus on the manner in which audiences might receive theatre (in its many forms) and write about it.
In the late 80s, Shri Shivratan Agarwal decided to walk his path and create a new identity for himself, this lead to the birth of the brand Bikaji. At the time when the technology to produce Bhujia on a large scale was unthought of, Shri Agarwal successfully laid the foundation of his dream venture. Not only, he ventured across the world to ﬁnd and co-invent the right technology for producing bhujia; but he also managed to ﬁnd an easy to remember name for the brand, that would easily connect with the consumers. The name Bikaji is derived from Bika Rao- the founder of Bikaner and Ji, used as a mark of respect in India. Shri Agarwal’s vision was to give the world, a taste of Aslee Parampara. He desired to reach every consumer with authentic Indian taste, that reﬂects India’s culture and values. Over the years, Bikaji has managed to win hearts across the globe, with its power of ethnic-snacking. Today, Bikaji stands for authentic Indian taste, with diverse products and innovative packaging, adding to its commitment of taking Aslee Indian taste to the world.
