Objective

I wish to share our experience and understanding of space and spaces for the arts in our city and and understading of what we think the arts needs today. I would also like to give an insight into what it means to have a concept and how one could go about realising it.

Description

Lost & Found is a venture to discover space for performance and art in the life of a city.Lost & Found aims to seek out new spaces within the city – unseen, unnoticed, and undercover – for artists and audiences to make contact with each other.

Connecting artists with the neighbourhoods of New Delhi – and neighbourhoods through art – Lost & Found hopes to contribute towards nurturing more engaged and empathetic citizens, for a secular and more tolerant society.

The Session will consist of a presentation on the first Lost and Found festival held in November 2014 in order to share our experience of what it took to transform spaces and build new audiences, followed by a Q&A.
