Art is an inevitable part of human nature, and perhaps the only activity that propagates free expression of thoughts  in its purest form. The Indira Gandhi Centre for the Arts is a prime government-funded institution exclusively set up for the preservation and promotion of art in the country. Inaugurated by the late Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi on 24 March 1987, it was established by him in the memory of his mother, Indira Gandhi.

As an autonomous institution under the Union Ministry of Culture, the Indira Gandhi Centre for the Arts encompasses vivid dimensions of art under one roof. Subjects like anthropology, archaeology, literature, sculpture, performing arts, etc., are enveloped together with mutual interdependence, without compromising on their individual identity. Through various programmes and researches, the IGNCA encourages development of art, and coalesces the fragments of Indian Art and Culture. The IGNCA has six functional units under it.

For the devout lovers of art, this place is like the ultimate Gurukul that you should definitely be a part of!
