Ambar Bhattacharya, Takmaa News Kolkata, 4th Dec 2022 : 1st of its kind school in India and 2nd in the World. Ek Tara partnered with the Tomorrowland Foundation, a foundation created by the largest and most popular electronic music festival in the world and launched Tomorrowland Foundation Music & Arts School in Kolkata. The school was inaugurated by Janab Javed Khan, Shri Swarna Kamal Saha, Shri Sandipan Saha. The school has been built with a purpose of providing best training in music and arts to thousands of marginalised children across the city. Ek Tara would be also imparting training to the teachers of KMC run schools.
This 7000 sq ft large school and performance space has been built within the existing Ek Tara Learning Centre in the heart of the largest slum communities in Kolkata. It will allow young girls and woman from the communities to attend music, dance, arts and theatre classes and express themselves creatively. Both the Tomorrowland Foundation and Ek Tara are convinced that education should not be restricted to learning to read and write. The ability to express yourself creatively is also part of the personal development of children and youngsters.
Commenting on the occasion, Janab Javed Khan said, the journey with Ek tara started since 2016 and we look forward for a stronger relation with them in the future. They have been doing a wonderful job with the girls and boys of the area and Kolkata and we look forward for their professional help with our government schools in Kolkata and the state’

Debby Wilmsen spokesperson from Tommorowland foundation ,said” we support children all over the world especially the ones the needy and downtrodden ones. We have mobile music schools running globally and in India. We are happy to collaborate with Ek Tara as we find their philosophy and thought in line with ours. Children need more than something to learn and enjoy other than their standard education hence we thought upon the idea to impart knowledge to the kids and children for the grwth of their creative sides with art music theatre etc. This is the second music and arts school that we are opening in India other than the one opened on the lap of the Himalaya’s in Nepal. We look forward to open the 3rd one in Africa or South America next.”

The school will also open its doors to children enrolled from other nonprofits, budget private schools and government schools in the city. It aims to reach out to 5000 children in the next four years.
The Tomorrowland Foundation Music & Arts School by Ek Tara is the first of its kind in India and second of its kind in the world. This school will offer classes in music, dance, arts, theatre, photography and other visuals and performing arts. This will give the vulnerable children a chance to express themselves creatively, work on their self-esteem, and create avenues to explore their talents and interests. All of these coupled with good education will enable these children to break out of the cycle of poverty and lead dignified lives as contributing members of society.
