Srishti

Srishti Institute of Art, Design, and Technology was founded in 1996 by the Ujwal Trust, a not-for-profit organization. At Srishti, we “believe that education is beyond instruction and skill; that knowledge is inherently integrated and complex and, hence, learning must be embedded in real-world problems and situations. We believe in looking beyond the origins of references and citations from scholarly texts and peer-reviewed journals; the references of artists and practitioners of the unschooled also contribute to learning. We believe in extending education beyond the “gated” and the “preserved”; it should be “permeable” and “porous” allowing students to work at the level of the street and the bazaar, and to explore and experiment with the textures of the rural and the urban.”

Naveen Bagalkot and Catalina Alzate mentor this project space at Srishti.
