I am delighted to share that it is indeed an excellent opportunity to promote and support artists, curators, art lovers and people in public sphere to develop deep bonds among people in society. This role comes with a sense of responsibility to foster a spirit for nation building by promoting social cause through art and demystify art for common people.

It brings the inspiring work of various painters, curators and exhibitors as well as of budding artists and students, pursuing Fine Arts courses in different campuses of Amity University, in the public sphere and escalate social causes too. It spreads the ‘creative joy’ in society through events, exhibitions, Residency Programmes and dialogues.
