About:

We are standing in that juncture of history when isolation is the only way to save us from ourselves. This is a time no one could have thought of in their scariest nightmares. Social distancing might save us from Novel Corona Virus but it also brings loneliness. There is no comfort of companionship. We suffer alone. These are desperate times.

Pablo Picasso once wrote that “The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls”. To go through this hard time, we must turn to the arts. Creativity bears witness of resilience in times of crisis. The Artists translates their frustration, pain, confusion, anxiety and hopelessness through the medium of art. Art is a powerful way to communicate complex ideas, inspire action and connect communities – helping advance resilience. Art can also inspire people to envision a hopeful future on an individual level, and take action to help realize that future. And the barricade of home cannot stop a true artist from creating. We all remember Jafar Panahi’s “This Is Not a Film”. Don’t we?
