Kashmir Art Quest is an independent international contemporary arts foundation based in Srinagar, Kashmir, founded in August 2009. 

Kashmir Art Quest stages art experiences around the world, with primary focus of the promotion of Kashmiri artists globally; the creative economy;  and to try and create a situation in Kashmir where an international art scene might exist. 

We are the only actively working organisation and have executed some of the most challenging and innovative projects that have been instrumental in the revival of art-scene in Kashmir. Our projects have engaged hundreds of artists  and thousands of people worldwide.
