Ark Foundation for the Arts is conceptualized as a collaborative arts institution with a dynamic programme that will endeavor to fulfill the foundation’s core purpose – ‘To create opportunities and provide incentives for widespread engagement with the arts, using narratives centered around Baroda’s visual arts oeuvre’. Its wide range of initiatives focus on access and engagement, pedagogy, archiving legacies, and patronage. Its programmes and spaces are designed to attract disparate audience groups to engage with the arts. The foundation’s academic focus is to archive Baroda’s rich legacy of visual arts, and to contextualize its role in a national and international perspective. The foundation will also continue to identify and support key areas of the ecosystem that are underserved, by way of collaborations, sponsorships, and grants. The Ark Foundation for the Arts began operations on June 1, 2022, via a digital programme, and as well will inaugurate a physical arts center in Baroda, Gujarat, in a few years.
