Paramita Saha


Director, Artsforward Ideas and Events Pvt Ltd

Paramita Saha heads Artsforward; designing strategic encounters between businesses and artists to create opportunities of nurturing the creative industries and their contribution to the community. Paramita has 20 years of contemporary dance training and has represented India at art forums across 18 countries. Delegate to the British Dance Edition 2012, UK’s premier dance event, International Exposure 2012, Israel’s showcase dance event at Tel Aviv, and chosen to participate at the Edinburgh Fringe Showcase 2013. She feels that arts can impact people deeply and therefore can build moving messages for environmental sustainability for the present generation. Paramita has designed and managed the Microsoft Create to Inspire Program in Kolkata inspiring sustainable consumption from 2013-15. She has also designed a unique initiative to connect Heritage to the city’s youth through artistic collaboration through The Future of the Past. She is an ArtThinkSouthAsia 2016 Fellow. Presently Paramita is developing an ewaste awareness program for schools in India along with partner Karo Sambhav, working to set-up an India wide transformative solution on the management of e-waste. She is also specifically interested in the process of creating an Indian model of intervention inspired by the thought that environmental sustainability should be placed at the heart of how artists work and create so that it is part of their practice and offers a way to culturally transform their audiences. Paramita is one of the leading social media influencers in Kolkata and particularly enjoys working with the 15-30 year age group to inspire them to creative leadership.
