NIV ART CENTRE
NIV ART CENTRE 位於印度堡壘之城新德里南端外緣，與著名英迪拉甘地國立開放大學（IGNOU：Indira Gandhi National Open University）相鄰，位處風景茵茵如畫的阿拉瓦利（Aravalli）山群，這樣的地理位置與德里城內的熙來攘往保持肅穆的距離。Niv 如處子般靜靜的坐在古世界充滿魅力的大門口，為那些受創意靈感攫獲的人們，創造無數的奇異相遇。
NIV ART CENTRE 懷抱國家對於文化實踐的視野和願景，特別針對視覺藝術和新媒體藝術加以栽培，旨在增進提升藝術實踐所須的必要基礎。印度及世界各地的藝術實踐，面臨全球性文化及消費行為帶來的衝擊，正以激烈的速度轉變當中。其源自於前所未有的資訊科技大爆炸，以及都市化無情擴張的現象。除此之外，藝術越漸為人們所接受、在文化生活中的地位提升、並成為人們潛在的投資對象，也是造成此衝擊的原因。
考量上述諸多面向及其對於藝術實踐的影響，Niv 致力提供更具優質串聯潛力的實踐模式，提升各領域參與者的信心，使他們能自在地扮演個別的角色，如創作者／製作人、提供者／傳播者、觀眾／消費者等。NIV 為志在藝術領域耕耘的實踐者提供平台，希望能建立活絡的關係、消弭各藝術實踐之間本質上的歧異，同時延續藝術工作室歷史傳統的方針。
