Renaissance Artists and Writers Association, (RAWA), was founded by P.R. Sarkar in India in 1958 in order to restore art to its true role as an instrument for social and spiritual awakening. He envisioned a New Artistic Renaissance where artists, musicians and writers would unite and inspire society to move forward in a progressive direction.

RAWA is working to achieve these aims through the following programs:

1. formation of artists cooperatives
2. sponsoring art exhibitions
3. publication and production of recordings, books and journals
4. organizing concerts, theatrical productions, songwriting contests and other events which provide a means for deserving artists to reach the public
