Purpose: To bring artists together in the region and beyond to speak and validate their creative thoughts in a shared setting.

Artists are constantly traveling today in the age of Globalisation. New paradigms in the field of theatre, dance, film, photography, sculpture and painting are constantly emerging and evolving in the blink of an eye.

What do these new paradigms create within us? Do they complicate our associations with the past practices? Do they supersede the notions of the past? Or do they dovetail our thoughts of the past with the present and help artists to speak in different tongues both local and global ?

Also included in the presentation will be discussions on how art can help with addressing modern medical, social and socio-economic issues such as, racial discrimination, healthy healing, domestic violence, climate change and more?

Come and enjoy a day of sharing , a day of exchange of dialogues , a need for discussion, a purpose to foreground our future artistic collaborations and through performance express the under girded quest for an identity in the world at large.

All participating members shown below will use visual and creative ways to present for half an hour.
