Asian Arts Initiative March 25th 6:00pm to 7:00pm
“An evening of Kathak dance, video, and community engagement. We are a grassroots organization in Philadelphia but our roots travel far to a little-known location where dance thrives among the underprivileged. Please join us to support the community arts initiative at Subhasgram in the outskirts of Kolkata.”
