Kasauli Art Centre was founded in 1976 by artist Vivan Sundaram in Kasauli, a hill station in North India. The Centre is known to have organised artists camps, international artist residency programmes, seminars and theater workshops, all designed to explore common grounds between artists, film-makers, critics, architects, playwrights and performers.
