Message From President of Ankur Association


We are a small drop in the ocean but we dare to “Drop”

Multiculturalism is a body of thought in political philosophy about the proper way to respond to cultural and religious diversity. 

Our country was founded on the belief of freedom. This freedom was meant for everyone. When our country was founded, many different cultures existed on our land; we are a melting pot of cultures. Canada has long been called "The Mosaic", due to the fact that it is made up of a varied mix of races, cultures and ethnicities. As more and more immigrants come to Canada searching for a better life, the population naturally becomes more diverse. I give here an ideology by Kevin Boore multiculturalism is a society “at ease with the rich tapestry of human life and the desire amongst people to express their own identity in the manner they see fit.”

At ANKUR we are we are small group of people like a rain drop who dare to Drop in that huge ocean to mix and flow to create innumerable waves and effort to rise to reach the sky to form a rainbow.

Our vision is to promote and bridge communities through Performing Arts, Music and Dance. Our Aim is to give an opportunity to all those local artists who are looking for an opportunity to synergies and connect and find a spot for their creativity and talent to explore opportunities to connect, to communicate and to celebrate.

Keeping the mandate in mind, Ankur Multicultural Association for Performing Arts was informally created in 2005, and was formally registered as a non-profit Association in the City of Edmonton in 2007. Since its inception, Ankur has been organizing multicultural shows involving people of different ethnicity across the globe. The Executives on Board (2012-13) are Canadians of native origins of China, Korea, Sweden, Russia and India.

It is my great pleasure to welcome you all who are visiting this page, and would like to extend an Invitation, come and join ANKUR to get involved and participate with to celebrate and rejoice the Culture and Communities of great city of Edmonton.

Quoting Henry Ford "Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.

On behalf of Executives would like convey our best wishes in whatever you’re trying to achieve and accomplish.
