Indian Heritage and Cultural Association (IHCA-NJ) is a volunteer based non-profit organization established in 2013 in New Jersey USA. The main purpose of this organization is to promote local talent and to bring communities together through the performing arts: theater, dance, and music.

IHCA-NJ gives an opportunity to local highly gifted artists, to express their talent without the limiting factors of language, subject, and censorship. With U.S. based local artists, IHCA-NJ produces theater events such as Natya Darpan, a dance based event called Nritya Darpan, and a musical program, Sangeet Darpan.

Every year, IHCA-NJ organizes Natya Darpan, a multilingual short play festival in New Jersey. Many highly acclaimed and award-winning US-based theater groups performed exceptionally high-quality short plays.

Partial funding for this program was provided by Middlesex County Board of Chosen Freeholder through a grant award from the Middlesex County Cultural and Arts Trust Fund and Consulates of India-New York and San Francisco.
