Theertha is an autonomous, artist-led non-profit initiative based in Colombo. It was established in 2000 to facilitate the local community of artists in innovation, experimentation, exchange and dialogue within Sri Lanka. Since its inception,  Theertha has grown from a small informal group to an organization with 17 resource persons (mostly visual artists) working on a number of projects that include publication, teacher training, international workshops/ residencies, exhibitions, computer training, website development and sustaining regional and international connections.
