  • Noopuraagama– In the present scenario of art research field, bringing out a Research journal is understood to be absolute necessity. In this regard, there is neither any documentation nor internationally registered magazines with media and academic background, to publish the opinions of researchers, or publish their writings. Research papers presented in Conference, if not published in a journal, will not be of any value. Since many years the art field has been facing the dearth for a research journal which can give a standard quality, and act as a guiding element for further healthy research. Realizing this lacuna, the Noopura Bhramari Dance Researchers’ Forum has come up with a dedicated endeavor of commitment towards search-research work which gives support and inspiration to the interested research group.  Hence, the Noopura Bhramari Dance Researchers’ Forum, comprising of resource persons experts in the field of education and media has brought out a Registered Annual research Journal with ISSN No. exclusively for researches.



There are several questions posing the art research field. Especially, in case of the performing arts including dance, the very relevance of research to the very practical aspects of the art form is often doubted. If at all convinced, then the next query would be about the nature of art research. Questions related to standards, disciplines, methodologies, objectives, relevance to the present day forms, challenges in the path, opportunities for research, the probable life span for research, etc., keep shooting up. In fact such questions can be attempted to be answered only with academic support which need to be constantly gauged with a practical outlook, especially in the case of a performing art to make research realistic.

Noopura Bhramari that started as an art periodical, took the form of a trust and later ventured into the publishing house and now has also opened a wing meant for art research; focusing on creating awareness about necessity of research in the field of art and also creating a platform for presenting papers for researchers- ‘Dance Researchers’ Forum’, has now created a history.
