Multi-Disciplinary Indian Arts Non-Profit Opens Doors in Dallas
Founder of DFW South Asian Film Festival (SAFF), Jitin Hingorani, in partnership with the founder of One Society by Shastra, Anu Agarwal, has launched a multi-disciplinary, Indian arts non-profit in North Texas called the Dallas Indian Arts Collective (DIAC).
DIAC’s launch production is the musical play “Three Women” by Isheeta Ganguly. The one-night-only event will be shown from 7 to 9 p.m. June 14. at the Marshall Family Performing Arts Center at GreenHill School.
DIAC’s mission is to create a cross-cultural platform to promote understanding and appreciation of Indian performing, visual and literary arts.
“Arts creates [ex]change and through the success of SAFF, we have noticed that Dallasites are hungry for quality South Asian programming in our art-friendly city,” said Hingorani. “Much like the independent films we bring to North Texas every year, we now hope to bring independent artists — dancers, singers, playwrights, authors, painters, sculptors –to add to the vibrancy of our cultural landscape.”
