To unravel the world of art in its various ubiquitous, yet-often intangible manifestations, Dhi Collective brings together anyone and everyone that desires to discover its elemental place in our lives. Through a serial programme of experiential steps, this scenographic journey will walk us through gallery viewings, museum visits, lecture-demos, workshops, film screenings, poetry-reading sessions, interactive studio visits and expert discussions. This forum will curate master presentations by accomplished aestheticians and introduce us to the many spheres of visual, auditory and performing genres of art. Dhi Collective endeavours to foster a meaningful engagement with art and stir its latent quintessence in our lives. For a world without art, it is like food without salt.
