Every year, the Foundation hosts inspirational performers of repute in New Zealand to both perform and hold workshops for students and teachers of various performing arts.
The Foundation has access to considerable recorded and published content, including educational content, much of it produced non-commercially by teachers over several decades. This is from the private collection of musicologist, author and music critic Mohan Nadkarni, in whose name the Foundation has been formed.
A wordless, musical involving 35 performing artistes comprising singers, actors, dancers, musicians and other performing artistes was hosted in Auckland in March 2018. Several of the young artistes performed on stage for the first time.
