SGBS Trust that aims to make the rich cultural heritage of India
"Utsav-Culture meets Purpose", is an initiative of the SGBS Trust,from the house of Unnati, that aims to make the rich cultural heritage of India accessible to all, by organising concerts and other cultural events. Our identity lies in our cultural roots and a lot of this is preserved by art forms like live music, dance and theatre. The involvement of each one of us in these aspects is extremely critical to maintain harmony in the society.
This is as important to human life as environment is to the society. The performing arts have kept us together and built so much on, in such a meaningful way, making us all part of this wonderful 'Vasudeva Kutumbakam' that continuously gives back to society and partakes of all that we are so richly blessed with.
Over the years, the Gokulashtami Series, among other offerings from the house of Unnati, has emerged as an iconic event for connoisseurs of Indian classical music and dance, with performances from some of the most talented and highly respected names in the cultural scene, providing an inspiring and inviting experience for the listeners/audiences to expand upon their horizons of entertainment, education and discovery.
Utsav is also used as a platform to showcase the Unnati Programme, which is one of the important fundraising events for Unnati.
