Dr Vishalakshi Roy

Culturally Vishalakshi is inspired by opportunities that bring together individuals to celebrate different cultures and interests in local and community settings. Be it young people making music, communities accessing arts in their village halls or cultural parades created by school children. Arts activities that make people proud of their identity and where they live fill her with joy!
