The Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) was founded on 9th April 1950 by Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, the first Education Minister of independent India. Since then we have seen in India the consolidation of Indian democracy, the establishment of an equitable social order, the rapid development of the Indian economy, the empowerment of Indian women, the creation of a vibrant infrastructure of world-class educational institutions, and the powerful revitalization of scientific traditions.
There has also been a revival, reiteration and renewal of the five-millennia old Indian culture, exemplified by the energetic projection, development and experimentation in Indian arts, the confident and creative expansion of Indian languages, and the great energy in Indian cinema. ICCR, in harmony with these developments, is in unison with contemporary India.The last five decades have been one of the most exciting periods in the arts in India’s long history. Indian literature, music and dance,
Indian paintings, sculpture and crafts, as well as Indian theatre and films, has each witnessed great outbursts of creativity. ICCR continues to encourage improvisation and experimentation with the new, while it pays homage to the classical as well as the folk forms of India’s cultural expression.
ICCR is about a communion of cultures, a creative dialogue with other nations. To facilitate this interaction with world cultures, the Council has strived to articulate and demonstrate the diversity and richness of the cultures of India, both in and with other countries of the world.

The Council prides itself on being the pre-eminent instrument of cultural diplomacy and the sponsor of intellectual exchanges between India and partner countries. It is the Council’s resolve to continue to symbolize India’s great cultural and educational efflorescence in the

years to come.
