IGNCA in its mandate has ‘Bal Jagat’ as one of the significant programmes of the institution. Activities like puppet shows, art workshops, music workshops, film festivals, cultural performances and story-telling sessions are organized at IGNCA or in schools and other venues regularly.


IGNCA has been hosting different kinds of workshops/events for young learners. In 2014, workshops were held on music, folk painting, photography, Kathak dance, shadow puppetry. A camp was organised on puppetry making and performance from Nagaland; similarly, folk art workshop was arranged for school children on Madhubani painting. In 2015, a mega event on ‘Kathakar-International Storytellers Festival was held to entice the younger generation with classic tales from all around the world. Since last year, emphasis is also being laid on the mission of ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’ to teach younger population, the significance of cleanliness and a clean nation through such events.


In recent years, one of the most significant activities in Bal Jagat programme has been the puppet show on the ‘Life of Swami Vivekananda’. The show organized in collaboration with Ramakrishna Mission and Bhartiya Lok Kala Mandal of Udaipur was presented in several schools in and around Delhi and also abroad. It carried the message of Swami Vivekanada to the young.


Students from schools and colleges from rural / urban regions are invited by the IGNCA to attend these educational events. The institution plays a perfect host and provides transport, tool kit, refreshments to its participants so as to give them a congenial environment for learning. Indeed, such programmes not only add to their education but also act as an inspiration to preserve many dying forms of Indian art and culture.
Through such endeavors, IGNCA is aiming to preserve rich Indian cultural heritage and keep it alive for generations to come.
