Support the Kerala Museum

Why support the arts?

In the words of our founder, R Madhavan Nayar,

Knowledge of the arts makes better citizens…

In the old days a king would be a patron. Through royal patronage of the arts, the stories of the greatness of a ruler and the dominant culture would be preserved for future generations. Today our objectives are very different.

The patrons of the 21st Century would probably not house artists in their lavish homes or order frescoes on their ceilings, but might instead to support upcoming artists or lend support to established arts institutions like your local Museum.

Why are the arts so important?

The arts are important because they keep us connected as a community, make us better people and allow us to imagine a future in which we ALL play a part.

At the Museum, we provide a space for artists to exhibit their work, for adults and children to appreciate history and art. We provide relevant alternative education through a year-round calendar of programming. The opportunities for personal and community development via workshops, masterclasses, regular meets and memberships are infinite. 

When you give, remember that you are giving not TO us but THROUGH us, to a worthy cause.

We know that the act of giving can be hugely satisfying. Contributions of any scale are most welcome. We promise you that the gift you give will support us in the fulfilling of our mission goals of education and learning for everyone.
