in you

Where we are...Kaladham

Who we are, what we do

'We' is a loose collective, and we'll use it loosely here. We are a diverse group of creative people—film-makers, painters, sculptors, writers, actors—who happen to believe that the much misunderstood word, 'art', can also stand for something inclusive. Something that we can all engage with--and create, when the environment is right..

We believe you have art “in you”. We would like to help you tap into your passion, discover it.

We speak a different language from conventional institutions.

We have a purpose, not a syllabus.

We are open to participants across disciplines, professions and age groups. We aim is to equip them with a new skill and enrich them with knowledge they can access without having to take a long break from their regular lives.

Artists, filmmakers and writers will design and conduct short courses/workshops for participants --open a window to a world that they may not have been able to access. The underlying philosophy is that creative fields are by definition 'open' fields. There is no reason why a student of physics, or an accountant, cannot also be a poet or a potter.

Cinema, creative writing, painting, sculpting, performing arts, animation and design, are all part of our plans. In a line, we would like to make contemporary arts more familiar, better understood and most importantly, more inclusive.

We welcome you to our world. Our arts are open.
