Mission Statement

The mission of Ayana Arts is to bring together a community of young professionals seeking to further cultivate their passion and experience in the South Asian arts. We aim to encourage fusion across all art forms, geographic regions, and styles with the shared goal of creating an innovative and unique performance. Ayana provides an enjoyable outlet for artists to collaborate, share and explore their talents. Above all, we will push the boundaries of traditional South Asian performing arts while remaining rooted in and honoring our South Asian culture and heritage. This, coupled with our philanthropic partnerships (we’re in the process of becoming a 501-c3) with local organizations catering to South Asian women and children right here in New York, is undoubtedly a recipe for success!
