CCGR is dedicated to preserving and promoting the rich cultural heritage of Odisha. We aim to raise awareness and understanding of the traditional arts, crafts, music, dance, and customs of the people of Odisha.
CCGR, started with the idea of people coming together to do something for the betterment of our society. Be it the local community or on a wider international scale. The urge has been to project the great cultural and historical heritage of our people to the international arena and also to acquaint our people with the great traditions of other countries.
It has been a genuine attempt of doing some qualitative work for the economic and social development of Odisha.
The Voyage: On the occasion of the Golden Jubilee Celebration of The Universe, Dated 09th February, 2024.
The genesis of Council of Cultural Growth and Cultural Relations (CCGR), the campus of which is popularly known as “The Universe” goes back to 1973, when a group of like-minded friends with a patriotic fervour, gathered to do something for the society.
They felt the urge to project the great cultural and historical heritage of our people to the international arena and also to acquaint our people with the great traditions of other countries. They also thought of doing some qualitative work for the economic and social development of Odisha.
During the last four and half decades, the Organization spearheaded many activities, which brought glory to the City of Cuttack and Odisha. The National and international seminars, friendship societies with different countries, cultural exchange programmes, celebration of Cuttack 1000 years, children festivals, different types of socio-economic projects are some of the achievements of the CCGR by virtue of which it has earned a unique identity in Odisha.
As mentioned before ‘The Universe’ had established friendship and cultural relations with many countries.. The main purpose of these friendship organisations was to project our cultural heritage to the International arena and also to acquaint our people with the great traditions of other people. Dignitaries from various countries had visited Odisha under different friendship and cultural banners and vice versa.
