South Zone Culture Centre, Thanjavur - Tamil Nadu
The South Zone Cultural Centre was established to bring the indigenous cultures of the zone closer to the masses, especially to the rural populace and to the under privileged, and make them understand, experience, educated and enjoy this cultural variety of our country. This will not only help the country to keep alive the cultural values and traditions but will also keep it emotionally integrated. Much of our cultural development after independence has been limited to a few who have appreciated it, the knowledgeable. It has not been permeated down to the rest of our society. Dance, Drama, Music and Art must all integrate to make a total concept of every aspect of our culture through Zonal Cultural Centres. The programmes are organized in line with this vision and with the intention to perform the centrifugal role of disseminating culture outwards.
