In furtherance to the objectives of AGF, Mrs. Tripti Arya has designed a range of programs for various innovative applications.

A quite innovative application is the Barbil Art Project, an artistic platform with an ideology to uplift the local art culture where renowned artists & student volunteers from different parts of the country come to Barbil for a residency workshop; interact with the local community, understand the culture, & exhibit the skills and creations. BAP has seen three successful seasons.

We are now working on a new initiative BHRAMARA FESTIVAL, a live show of Indian Classical Dances to attract the younger crowd in a more interactive & accessible way. Through this communicative show the younger crowd will be able to connect their mind, body & soul to classical dances & understand the discipline, patience & etiquettes which becomes the way of life.

We welcome those who share our dream to come support us in our endeavors.
