We are delighted to have Sandbox Collective join the Safety Research project. Their experience of working with a wide-variety of artists, institutions and stakeholders across India and worldwide, as well as dealing with difficult situations in the cultural industry, providing crucial insights into the research topic and how our individual practitioners think about safety in the performing arts.
Sandbox is a Bangalore-based artists' collective comprising a group of artists and art administrators working together to expand the scope of performance arts. The collective is led by Nimi Ravindran and Shiva Pathak, who have both worked in the theatre and as arts managers for over a decade. Their aim is to present, commission and disseminate performances of a high standard. They also work towards discovering and sustaining new culturally vibrant spaces in our cities by building new audiences and facilitating multi-disciplinary collaborations between artists.
