Kashmir Art Quest has been working towards the advancements of arts, artists, art education and community development in conflict-hit Kashmir ever since its foundation in August 2009. It is one of our foremost goals to create a situation in Kashmir where an international art scene might exist. We celebrate a culture of innovation and creativity and strive to foster creative and cultural entrepreneurship in the region. We realize the critical significance of creative expression and free speech for the social and cultural evolution of human civilizations and therefore ensure that each of our projects is an open space for free artistic expression and acts as catalysts for dialogues across all sections of the society. We are still the only independent arts organisation working actively in Kashmir.
