Malayala Kalagramam, Mahe

Located about 29 km from Kannur in New Mahe, Malayala Kalagramam is a renowned art and culture learning centre which conducts courses in painting, sculpture, music, dance and pottery. The centre aims to nurture the artistic talent of the younger generations, and encourage them to improve their knowledge of art, its trends, application and history.

Set up in 2003 by the A. P. Kunhikannan Trust, the centre also aims to preserve the cultural heritage of Malabar. Venerable philanthropist Mr A. P. Kunhikannan, who is also its founder, has received the famous “Ramashramam” award in recognition of his works.

The centre for art and ideas aims to provide children and youngsters with a Kalari (stage) to practise and perform all forms of fine arts. There are part-time as well as full-time courses in painting, sculpture, music and dance and art pottery, along with yoga and Sanskrit. The Fraternity Centre at the Kalagramam conducts seminars, symposia, extension lectures, in-service programmes and special projects in various fields of art and humanities.

The centre houses a library, an exhibition hall, an art gallery, a sculpture garden and an auditorium, cottages for staff and students, guesthouses for visitors and a canteen. Visitors are allowed to watch classes with prior permission from the Director.  

With an atmosphere that awakens creativity, the centre attracts a lot of art lovers. A day spent here among the tutors and the students and in the exotic library is a truly enlightening experience.
