Aimed at practitioners and professionals, it is part of an informal network ready to share ideas and experiences and envisage and devise strategies and methods for positive changes in these fields and other related areas.

The Foundation is engaged in initiating and continuing and maintaining dialogues between the makers and the consumers/viewers/listeners, sustaining an interactive field of creativity for a cause.

Apart from the annual events, the Foundation also arranges and co-organises periodic lectures, workshops, debates, discussions, seminars, festivals and exhibitions related to cinema and other performing media and the visual arts and literature, and inter-disciplinary interactions and proposes to publish monographs, portfolios etc. to disseminate information and creative ideas in these fields.
