Council for Arts and Social Practice (CASP) is a platform for transdisciplinary artistic research and practice to facilitate critical dialogues on cultural sustainability.


What We Do

CASP provides a platform for arts-based research, process-oriented practices, affective learning and participatory education. Our objective is to employ the arts as a catalyst to formulate ideas on mutualism and cultural sustainability.

Who We Work With

CASP engages with artists, curators, educators, architects, designers, performers, filmmakers, community organizers, social researchers, students and children. We collaborate with people in informal urban settlements, peri-urban spaces and villages.
