Culturepot Global brings together emerging and established artists drawing from the rich diversity of London and the vast cultural landscape of Bangladesh, opening up sustainable cultural dialogues. Culturepot events, whilst purely artistic in their making, also raise awareness of social and political issues within the art form itself or by association with advocacy partners. The driving team spearheaded by Runi Khan are all Londoners with serious commitment to the arts and aim to:
* provide a platform for an organic process of collaboration within and across art form between artists from around the world right down to grass root talents of Bangladesh, breaking away from the stereotype.
* ensure that while all productions carry a distinct Bangladeshi flavour of old traditions, they are contemporary and inclusive, focused on innovation and high quality standards for a global outreach.
