Theertha is an autonomous, artist-led non-profit initiative. It was established to facilitate the local community of artists in innovation, experimentation, exchange and dialogue within Sri Lanka. The core objective of Theertha is to explore the possibilities of exchanging ideas and knowledge across ethnic, regional and artistic borders in the context of contemporary critical art practice, which is especially urgent in the post civil war context. Theertha started its own gallery space “Red Dot Gallery” in 2007 to showcase experimental and socially engaged art and is one of the most important platforms in Sri Lanka.
