We believe in collaborations & experiential learning. It is at the heart of all our products & initiatives. Every individual human experience is a limiting one so collaborating with others has become essential. Collaborations challenge one’s current understandings and help to see things from new perspectives.

Collaborations are the key to stay relevant in today’s ever-changing times. So, as a company, we are always open to collaborations with other individuals and organisations who can add more value to the art community.
