in 1994 by Sanjeev Bhargava, SEHER literally means 'breaking of the dawn'.
Since its inception, Seher has been synonymous with thoughtful and imaginative
initiatives in the sphere of painting, sculpture, theatre, dance, music,
literature and cinema. Seher was founded with the vision of taking Indian
culture to large number of people, not just to a small cultural elite.
In the last 15 years, Seher has become one of the most highly regarded
organizations in the area of the performing and visual arts - both for
the diversity of performances as well as for the unusual manner in which
each one has been conceived. Its events have been repeatedly described
as historic, innovative and radically different.
These have included live performances amid ancient monuments as well as
in public parks. Many have been done for the first time ever in India
and have attracted thousands of people. Apart from these, some of the
major initiatives by SEHER are 'India Now' campaign in London at the Trafalgar
Square and Regent street, 'Ananya'- Classical Dance Festival, 'Bhakti
Utsav', 'Delhi Jazz Festival', 'South Asian Bands Festival', 'SAARC Artists'
Camp' and the 'Udaipur World Music Festival'.
