a. about us


We are a travel-based, not-for-profit, social-work-through-art organization. At the core, we are on a mission to spread awareness about the ill-effects of a paradigm that is built along the lines of selfish-competition. Through our documentaries, art-based collaborations and community development projects we are striving to explore the negative aspects of a capitalistic/selfish way of life and in the process to also find alternative modes of community living. An attempt to shift the foundation of our society from selfish-competition to mutual co-operation is at the crux of what drives us.
What happens when we treat everyone’s problems as our own? What change occurs when we treat entire society as our own family? What happens when a person includes entire humanity into his/her circle of ‘me’ and ‘my’?
These are some of the key questions that we wish to raise and answer through our documentary and social work efforts.
As a part of #DriveForChange, our first campaign, we drove non-stop through various rural and tribal regions of India for an entire year. - Documenting culture, life and socio-economic challenges of various communities and initiating necessary community development projects to empower them all along.
Travelling

Traveling is at the core of our work. We travel into rural/tribal areas or uncharted routes based on our own research of the communities residing in these regions.

Local Community

When we visit an area, we live with the local communities for an extended period of time. This helps us to understand their issues better and hence allows us to document the ground reality of the situation in these areas more effectively through documentary films, photo stories and other artistic collaborations. We then spread awareness and start a dialogue about these issues in public space.

Empowerment

During our stay with the community, we also identify development and community support projects through which we can empower and support various individuals and communities.

Collaboration

In collaboration with our local social organization partners, Funding partners, and Crowd funding we implement these development projects and closely monitor their execution and progress.

b. our team

We are driven by a small yet efficient team of dedicated individuals that believe in our vision.
