Ahoy Hyderabad! Imagine a platform that’s not just a hub of exchanging stories and experiences as a creative but one that is also the mediator that facilitates connections with other artists, jobs, scholarships and so on? Sounds perfect, doesn’t it?

ACRI or the Arts and Culture Resources India is making quite a wave in the cultural ecosystem and rightfully so! After conducting successful networking events and workshops for creative and cultural professionals in Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru and Chennai, ACRI is coming to Hyderabad on 21st July 2019!

ACRI is an initiative started by The Art X Company which is an interdisciplinary arts organization that operates at the intersection of arts and access. The company was founded in 2015 by Rashmi Dhanwani, an independent arts consultant, curator and creative producer. They conceptualize and execute cross-genre events and projects, and undertake arts research across cultural and creative industries.

From theatre to visual arts, graphic design to music, there is an intangible force that allows
expression to take the centre stage. Acknowledging and bouncing ideas off one another is an
indispensable part of creating something. Whether it is to discuss an opportunity or to create
something better together, collaborations are invaluable.

The event would kick-start with a panel discussion titled Catalysts of Change. The need for Change is a strong motivator to pursue passions. Our panelists have challenged the norm to bring about Change. The Change they brought about has not only got them closer to their goals but also benefitted the entire ecosystem. They are ‘Catalysts of Change’ and their contributions are (without doubt) unmatched.
