Dear Maiaca Patrons,

 

In these trying times, we want you to know that MAIACA is with you. We had planned an exciting year of interesting Indian art and culture events. As COVID-19 spread and changed life as we know it, we, like everybody, had to change the way we thought and worked. We have been thinking about you, our friends and supporters, and how we can still bring meaningful events that will help us all navigate these difficult times and bring our community together.

We have put together a list – philanthropy to feed your soul, entertainment to feed your mind, workouts to keep you fit, activities to keep you smiling, and DIYs (Do It Yourselves) to keep you looking good. We will periodically update this list on this website so check it out regularly. You can always email us at maiaca.inc@gmail.com with your thoughts and suggestions.

 

Stay positive and safe.
