Welcome to Renu Forum for the Arts!
Mission and Philosophy
  • What makes art spiritual?
  • Can we find our focus and balance in creativity?
  • Can art stimulate, sharpen, and civilize us?

Renu Forum for the Arts, a 501(c)(3) Indian art nonprofit organization in the USA, located in the northeastern state of New Jersey in the Princeton metropolitan area. Founded in 2019 for preserving Indian Classical arts, Renu believes in the compelling and transformative power of arts. India, a civilization 5000 years old, is an extraordinary treasure trove of arts universally acclaimed for their spiritual essence and charm. In an effort of promoting Indian Classical arts Renu interprets the uplifting Indian arts of Classical music, dance and architecture to global audiences. Our mission-based work of Preserving and promoting Indian Classical arts takes place via high quality theater performances and educative endeavors. The Renu artistic programs are designed to draw people into an immersive experience of history, culture, and creativity. As an Indian art nonprofit organization in the USA, we are a secular equal opportunity organization that embraces diversity and inclusion.


The idea of Renu roots in Founder Anita Kulkarni’s passion for arts. The subcontinent’s legacy in arts can only be rejoiced by preserving and promoting Indian Classical arts on the global stage! With a long career in architecture, Anita is also a trained Classical vocalist in Hindustani music, her blend of skills in visual and performing arts inspiring and shaping Renu in concept. With the humble beginnings operated by one person, Renu, the Indian art nonprofit organization in the USA has now bootstrapped its way to international prominence, presenting artistic work at top theaters in North America, Europe and India.
