Process to create a cultural committee in a Bengaluru apartment society

Our apartment is three year old and still under builder maintenance. There is an association built to take handover from builder and also for effective follow-ups of apartment maintenance. In this situation, can we build a cultural committee? What will be the powers for such cultural committee? Can there be multiple such cultural committees or groups in an apartment?
