We’re thrilled to have the singer and composer, Supriya Nagarajan working with Participate in schools in County Durham, this October, as part of our Rural Young Creatives project. Supriya will visit Stanhope Barrington Primary School and Wolsingham Secondary School.
Supriya is a classically-trained Carnatic singer who is inspired by not only the traditions of her South Asian roots, but also by a drive to work with new ideas, forms and aesthetics from across the world, presented within a contemporary British context.
She is also founder and CEO of Manasamitra, an artist-led organisation based in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, delivering a range of exciting and original cross-cultural experiences. Through Manasamitra, Supriya delivers a variety of arts projects and performances from visual arts to music both classical and contemporary alongside artistic interventions in social and community settings.
