Plans for implementation and sustainability
Above all we do foster long term relationships which are nurtured with participants and collaboration partners alike - covering a wide spectrum within the art world, experiential hospitality, NGO's, as well as educational and cultural institutions. By offering custom tailored events / workshops we do introduce participants to the traditional artisan heritage, providing direct support and exposure for artisans and community support, especially to children within those communities. The financing of social projects is being facilitated through the commercial avenue of Art Retreats, meaning that a large % of profits is being directed to those causes as a means of giving back and sustaining a long lasting empowering impact.
