Art in the time of Corona, supported by Finolex Industries

Art and creativity will spread hope and positivity in these troubled times of coronavirus.

Hope and positivity through creativity

Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is possibly the biggest threat to humankind in recent history. Many cities, regions and countries are in a state of lockdown. In India, the Prime Minister declared a complete national lockdown for 21 days from the midnight of 24th March 2020. While we remain in our homes totally locked down for the coming 3 weeks, we cannot allow ourselves to be overwhelmed by fear and panic due to coronavirus. We will need to take the COVID-19 challenge head on. LET US DO ART. We will spread hope and positivity. What better way to drive away our fears and anxieties these troubled times.
