About Us

The Sri Lanka Arts Society – New Jersey is a group of diverse cultural organizers and artists working together to advance and promote the Sri Lankan arts in the tristate area through:

• staging events and programs
• supporting local artists
• partnering with other artists and arts groups from both USA and Sri Lanka
• bringing Sri Lankan arts and culture to children
• creating an atmosphere committed to the diversity of practices and practitioners
• advocating understanding and intellectual engagement

We value the wealth of the cultural heritage of the Sri Lankan American community, and believe that by sharing it in an open, inclusive, and accessible manner will enrich the whole community.

We believe in the Freedom of Expression, in creating dialogues between artists and the society, and in fostering diversity and artistic experimentation.

SLAS is committed to conducting our affairs with a high degree of originality, excellence, professionalism, highest ethical standards, accountability, and fiscal and environmental responsibility.
