IPA
Institute of performing Arts
The Institute of Performing Arts (IPA) is an initiative of The Nighat Chaodhry Foundation which was established in February 2015, in Lahore.
There is a tremendous need for the performing arts. Society is disconnected from its own roots. People are living with insecurities, stress, depression, un-channeled emotions, a disowning of our culture, heritage, and creativity resulting in a dire need of revival of our identity. Thus the idea of an Institute of Performing Arts took birth; where all forms of performing arts under one roof could play that role of empowering all in search of self.
