Culture & Heritage

Sirish™ Festival is the APPL Foundation’s initiative for the promotion of indigenous art and culture. An innovative approach that focuses on the unique cultural heritage of the tribal communities of the tea gardens. These communities collectively came to be known as the Tea Tribes. They emerged with the tea plantation in Assam and have since then, immensely contributed not only to the growth of the tea industry but also to the State Exchequer. The Sirish™ Festival is an attempt to promote, exhibit and preserve these distinct cultural and art forms and facilitate their integration into mainstream Assamese society.
