Ministry of Culture, Government of India, set up IGNCA in 1987 to explore, study and disseminate Indian arts and revive the dialogue between India and her neighbors, especially in South and Southeast Asia, in the areas pertaining to the arts. Arts encompasses a wide area of studies, such as creative literature – written and oral; visual arts – architecture, sculpture, painting, graphics, and general material culture; photography and films; the performing arts – music, dance, and theatre; festivals with artistic dimension.
IGNCA’s Cultural Informatics Laboratory took up the task of documentation and digitization of cultural resources and developing interactive multimedia-based learning resources to create expertise in the areas of digital artifacts. IGNCA’s Conservation Laboratory is also fully equipped for the conservation work of artifacts and has the rich strength of in-house core faculty.
