Experiences

Founding Director

Deshopriyo Kolkata Cultural Centre  |  Kolkata, India

January, 1985 - Present

Deshopriyo Kolkata Cultural Center was the brainchild of Late Ajoy Sen and Guru Sushmita Banerjee. It was founded in 1985 as the “Calcutta Cultural Center. The center started humbly trying to address the cultural crisis at the time. Young artists were did not have proper forums or opportunities to showcase their talent. Concerts were organized on a monthly basis in residences and with the help of Goethe Institute.

There were many talented artists from rural West Bengal who were invited by the Center to perform and connect with prominent artists of the time. With time, the centre began training students in the field of Kathak for national competitions and competitive examinations to spread Kathak and Indian culture amongst the youth and encourage them to embrace it.

Recently, the Calcutta Cultural Center was rechristened the Deshopriyo Kolkata Cultural Centre (DKCC) as a pioneering institute for excellence in Kathak. Over time, DKCC has catered to over 1000 students. Students excel in the Prayag Sangeet Sammelan examinations and national and international competitions such as the Akhil Bharati Sanskrutic Sang Pune, Theater Movement Patiala, Cultural Olympiad
