Sangam Arts – Connecting Cultures

Our mission is to help create and nurture strong intercultural connections between the many vibrant cultures in the US through visual and performing arts

About Us

Founded in 2013, Sangam Arts is a 501(c)3 non-profit that provides an innovative platform for artists from diverse backgrounds to come together to collaborate and co-create world-class multicultural music and dance performances. Using a wide range of cultural and artistic expressions from Folklorico and Tap to Kathak and Hula, our presentations are carefully curated to that help us see our common humanity while allowing us to celebrate the traits that make us unique.

Our unique approach and reputation for quality programming have helped us gain support grantors and foundations such as Office of Cultural Affairs, City of San Jose, SVCreates and Knight Foundation.

Mosaic America

As our society becomes increasingly diverse culturally, we need a new model of social integration. One that allows people from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds to come together as Americans while retaining our unique cultural identity.  Mosaic America is a grassroots initiative launched by Sangam Arts to help strengthen our rapidly diversifying communities through collaborative, multicultural arts.

By launching local initiatives, like Mosaic Silicon Valley, we help create performances that reflect the unique cultural and artistic makeup of communities.

Sangam Arts

So grateful to these pioneers for their enormous contributions to making the Bay Area more vibrant and inclusive for all cultures.Sangam Arts is just five years old but we've enjoyed significant growth on all fronts (programming, reach, recognition) that belies our age. Our success would not have been possible without the work of many visionaries and pioneers in the Bay Area who have worked over decades to advocate for and create the conditions for organizations like ours to succeed and break new ground. We are proud to honor five such extraordinary individuals with our Mosaic America Impact Award for 2018. Please join us on July 29th as we honor Assembly Member Ash Kalra, San Jose Taiko Founders Roy Hirabayashi and Pj Hirabayashi, San Jose Arts Commissioner Ron P. Muriera and Executive Director of Dancers' Group Wayne Hazzard in a brief ceremony as part of "Divine Feminine: Shakti-Shekinah" performance at DeAnza VPAC in Cupertino (4:00 - 6:00 PM).
