The Avant-Garde Project
The avant-garde project is started to explore innovatory ways to advocate changes to benefit humankind, wildlife, and the planet.
Through different forms of art such as photography, filmmaking, animations, painting, and storytelling, the project aims to bring together imagination, vision, artistry, innovation, originality, and expressiveness to bring to life untold stories of the land, culture, people, wildlife, and Indigenous knowledge and inspire collective action for a socially equitable and ecologically sustainable future for all.
The Core Programme includes the Finder Programme, Creative Problem Solving (CPS) Programme, and Mass Outreach Programme.
The Finder Programme
The Finder program helps us identify and collaborate with established and emerging creative people throughout the world. We find like-minded people from a massive pool of talented people, review previous creative work, and extend an invitation to collaborate.
Creative Problem Solving (CPS) Programme
Under the CPS Programme, the stakeholder is introduced to Global Challenges & Potential Solutions. Exposure Trips are provided to help the stakeholder develop creative cognition and better understand the challenges we face today. With an aspiration to become a catalyst of positive change, the stakeholder uses his/her talent to solve the challenges in a creative way.
Mass Outreach Programme
Once the creative work is complete, all the stakeholders preview the work and unanimously wrap up the assignment. After that, different campaigns are started under the Mass Outreach Programme to create mass awareness, increase public participation, advocate changes, and create a lasting impact.
