The SVARAM Center is emerging from the original Musical Instruments Manufacture, initiated in 2003 as a grassroots development project in the field of musical instrument craft, art, research and socio-cultural impact. Initially started as a vocational opportunity for youth at risk, in 2011 the UN Initiative “Music as a Global Resource” adopted it as one of first 50 projects working worldwide towards achievement of the Millennium Goals through socio-cultural-creative enterprising approaches.
Currently, Svaram is in the process of creating a versatile center on dedicated land in the Auroville Galaxy plan, as a cutting-edge facility and unique curriculum to advance sound innovation, research and practices for education, personal growth, well-being and human unity.
