Vashi Fine Arts Society
With the constant increase in population in the city, many Mumbaikars shifted their residences to Navi Mumbai.
Regular bus and train services available at Navi Mumbai added to the comforts and provided an easy reach to the metropolis. Thus Navi Mumbai developed as a city by iteself on the outskirts of Mumbai.
It was quite natural that over a period of time the Music lovers here felt a need for a cultural institution, which will present all cultural activities eg: music, dance, and drama programmes as is done by other similar institutions in Mumbai.
Through constant efforts coupled with dedicated organizational skills, Vashi Fine Arts Society was started. The Society now conducts regular Music and other cultural programmes, music competitions, and celebrates the Thyagaraja aradhana.
Special mention must be made of the Society's Hon.Secretary. Smt. Revathi Viswanathan who with the able support of the President of the Society and the other members of the Managing Committee leaves no stone unturned in furthering the objectives of the Society. Last year the Society has presented over thirteen programmes to satisfy the cultural needs of its members.
Smt. Revathi Viswanathan is also connected with Vashi Tamil Sangam another leading Institution catering to the Tamils living in Vashi. And her experience in this field stood in good stead in bringing up the Vashi Fine Arts Society to great heights and perhaps she may now confidently boast, the Society is almost getting equal to other sister cultural institutions in the suburbs like Chembur, Ghatkopar etc.
Those desirous of obtaining membership of the society and attend the monthly and festival programmes, may contact the Secretary at the following address :-
