Project Bawra is a collective of creatives that seeks to provide a platform for artisans, artists and designers from India and around the world to explore, experiment, expand and exhibit traditional and cutting edge creative techniques that transform material and makers. Processes explored range from that of the hand to the digital.
There is no prominent platform in India currently engaging in a dialogue on contemporary jewellery. Current art and design practices pushing the envelope of contemporary jewellery in India are minimal.
Project Bawra seeks to fill this gap and provide impetus in this direction. It aims to rethink the field and acknowledge it as a noteworthy and integral part of the fine arts. As a cross cultural exchange, it would strengthen connections between craft communities in India and other cultures.
