Letter from Founder Trustee & President, LAMP Trust
While the world is technologically advanced and materially rich, it is still very poor. Society is in dire need of artists, musicians, writers and thinkers to shape and build our next generation. Without enough importance given to the arts, the rich become poor and the poor become blind, deaf and dumb. What is the point of wealth without inner peace and understanding of our fellow humans – whether in families, work places or across national boundaries. It is with the understanding and expression of life through arts that our emotional intelligence and happiness is secured. It is time that we give artistes an important place in the structure of society.
Whether a person chooses to be a doctor, engineer, banker, IT specialist, manager, or any thing else, an education and exposure to the arts cannot be neglected. It is time that art ceases to be just an ornament. It should be an essential in the life of an individual. While the privileged have access to some training in the arts, a huge number of our nation’s potential talent dwelling in the poor and under-served communities do not.
LAMP’s immediate focus will on raising world-class creative talent by building world-class inter-disciplinary creative and performing arts’ training and educational institutions. This will enable skill & talent development across the nation’s socio-economic strata. Such centres of excellence will be one of the keys to unlocking the potential of India in the Arts sector in the coming years.
Lorraine Music Academy has contributed over the past 6 years in Gurgaon to teaching of music and art in communities. Students and their families have testified to the dramatic positive impact that music & art have had on their lives.We are motivated to set up a World Cultural Centre to dramatically impact a wider section of our society.
Our immediate institutional objective is to raise awareness and resources to set up the LAMP World Cultural Centre in Gurgaon, National Capital Region, India to promote the Arts – Performing Art, Visual Art, Literary Art. LAMP will also make resources available towards skill & talent development for the poor & under-served communities.
Our immediate educational objective is to expose children and adults to World Music, Art, & Literature and thereby inspire & motivate them to take up learning of a musical instrument, to sing and to express themselves through art and literature. This will include educative workshops & concerts.
Our first activity for LAMP was a Music & Art Workshop, Performance & Exhibition held on 10, 11 & 18 Sep. The theme of the series of workshops was “Memories from your childhood” conducted using Kinderszenen (Scenes from Childhood) pieces of music for piano written in 1838 by Robert Schumann. Children painted while listening to music. The results were simply amazing. Parents were in awe of the resulting paintings that their very young children (aged 3 to 13) created.
The works of art done by our students / parents will be preserved at the LAMP Foundation Archives and displayed both in India and overseas as opportunities arise. Prints of the works of art would be utilized to mobilize resources for LAMP. These designs would be used to create products such as Greeting Cards, Desk Top Calendars, Wall Calendars, Framed Works of Art. We also have Music Gift Vouchers (Music Appreciation Workshops, Learning Sessions to learn to sing or play an instrument, etc). These products are available to individuals and corporates for gifting purposes this festive season in our efforts to mobilise resources.
We look forward to your support in our efforts and endeavours.
With Faith, Hope & Love,
