We are developing a learning center for rural tribal children and those who are interested in self sustaining life, something which is unique in its targets combined with enabling the communities to continue their knowledge, wisdom and tradition. That would act both as culture center for the community as well as a place for visitors to go and come away with a better understanding of the community and the local culture. [...]
Bringing together the extensive material collected by the local community, a small and very special folk museum has been created. [...] During the extensive field among the tribes, the couple collected objects from the daily and ceremonial life of the people.
The programs are designed to meet the needs of different groups and are structured to meet different levels of learning, so that a student can gradually learn about the different aspects of culture and its relation with the environment. [...] It has a research and documentation center, a folklore museum, a small library, a visiting artisan center, and a small but unique medicinal plants garden.
The founding members have been documenting on folk culture and heritage for the last 45 years. Together they have authored over 60 books in Kannada on topics like folk games, arts, songs, dance, food, drinks, rituals, ceremonies, festivals, gods, healing plants, costumes, ornaments etc.
This well researched database is a treasure trove of knowledge and understanding.
Apart from this the folklore center has huge collection of books related to folklore.
