Sydney Kannada Sangha Inc. (also known as Kannada Sangha) is a not for profit association of Kannada speaking community in Sydney for 37 years. Kannada is an Indian language, spoken in the southern Indian state of Karnataka and elsewhere.
In 1980s there were only few Kannada speaking families in and around Sydney. Few Kannada speaking families used to meet to have a get together over a dinner party every couple of months. Now the population of Kannada speaking is growing every year.
In 1981 the group of Kannada speaking people decided to formally register as an organisation (Sydney Kannada Sangha) to organise cultural activities for the benefit of Sydney Kannadigas. Thus Kannada Sangha was born.
Sydney Kannada Sangha for 2 decades has organised several cultural programs, performances of variety of artist in the field of music, dance, comedy, literature and entertainment. These programs have given Sydney Kannadigas an opportunity to see performances of number of well known artists from Karnataka in the field of Kannada and Culture.
Kannada Sangha has honoured the famous Kannada writers, singers, artists and local community members in recognition of their community work and achievements. Sydney Kannada Sangha is a very active Indian organisation and is the proud member of United Indian Associations.
