    Performing Art Organizations

Kalakendra, Society for the Performing Arts of India, is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization formed in February, 1987 and incorporated in the State of Oregon. Kalakendra programs are drawn from centuries-old, culturally diverse performing art forms of India. Kalakendra arranges programs, by that culture’s finest, internationally acclaimed performing artists, including some who have established themselves as teachers and performers in this country, as well as younger artists of outstanding caliber. Kalakendra encourages locally available talent through offerings of mini-concerts, house-concerts, and workshops. Though the majority of the audiences are from the Portland metropolitan area, several travel from the communities of Corvallis, Eugene, Vancouver, and coastal cities of the Northwest.
