Positive Weekends™is a transformative socio-cultural initiative by APCF that has left a lasting impact on the lives of over 1500 individuals through a harmonious blend of music concerts, meditation, yoga and environmental awareness in open spaces. In Season 1, we had the privilege of hosting 20 leading musicians and dancers, offering free access to all, as part of our mission to make Indian Classical music & heritage easily accessible to everyone and foster positive interactions and bonding across age groups and classes.

One of the unique aspects of our initiative is the inclusion of young children from underprivileged schools, inviting them to join the artists on stage. We also ensure they receive nutritious snacks during these events.

This groundbreaking event, marks the beginning of Season 2, that promises to build on the success of the previous season, and continue APCF's commitment to cultural enrichment and positivity through diverse and captivating experiences, in a way that transcends traditional boundaries.
