    Culture and Art dissemination: fostering cultural activities

    The pride of a community is reflected by the attainments of its artistic creativity in music, art and writing. Makaibari has always promoted her young talents via competitions and cultural exchanges.

    All villages of Makaibari have their own community centre where the respective village promote and facilitate the uplift of all the traditional art and crafts, dances and creative writing.


    Culture dissemination is  an ongoing activity that cement societies sustainably.
    The greatest impact has been the staging of the Nicholas Roerich’s exhibition ‘The Beauty of Himalaya-the Beauty of Tea’ at Makaibari, in partnership with Darjeeling Goodwill Centre and the Himalayan Institute of Goodwill and Living Ethics, in October 2012.

    The display of the contemporary artists of the Himalayan Art Academy, under the guidance of Hemu Rai, complemented the array of Nicholas Roerich’s genius, that turned the heritage oldest tea factory in the world into an art gallery over the Dussera break.
    Local children from all Kurseong schools competed in art exhibitions in the sit and draw contests, whilst in-between the cultural performances were on-going with music and dances, inside  the factory by different groups of talented children.

    It was the epitomy of cultural dissemination which is being made into a regular annual feature.
