About Us

Srimanta Foundation for Culture and Society is a charitable Trust working towards upholding and preserving the abiding principles of non-violence and humanism, peace and development, unification and social integration in Assam, the Northeast and other parts of the country. Since its inception and inauguration on April 8, 2003 by the erstwhile Hon’ble Governor of Assam, Lt. General (Rtd.) S.K. Sinha in Guwahati; the Foundation has been striving to spread and realise the egalitarian principles as laid down by Srimanta Sankardev, the sixteenth century Assamese Bhakti saint and social reformer (see link) and the visionary rulers like Chaulung Syukapha and Nara Naryana.

For the last sixteen years we have been working towards building up of social security and capital among the ethnic tribes and non tribes of Assam through innovative programs aimed at social reengineering. To this end, we experiment through dance, music and other art forms as well as research, documentation, seminars, workshops and discussions as media of communication and unification.
