Sattya Media Arts Collective is an organization I co-founded in Nepal in 2010 and am still passionately involved in. It is a resource center for artists, filmmakers, photographers, activists, and other creative types in Nepal. It provides a space and an open community for people who want to pursue their interests. Simply put, Sattya exists to encourage people to DO WHAT THEY LOVE.
WE WANT TO:
- Support artists by providing space, resources, classes, job opportunities and creating a community of skilled and passionate people who pursue their craft.
- Use media and art to bring about awareness and new perspectives in society.
- Make art and media accessible to people from different backgrounds, allowing everyone to shape their community and culture.
- DIT (Do It Together) ethics and collaboration
- Experiential learning and self-education
- Art for everyone
- Activism and grassroots efforts
- Community input
- Organizational transparency
