Should Art 2022 I connect I create I celebrate

Should Art 2022 I connect I create I celebrate


This November, we celebrate 7 years of culture, community, and city with our annual festival - Should Art!

Invite your friends

and enjoy a shared experience


Through a concentrated immersion into art, technology, and sustainability with artists, artisans, and our local neighborhood community, we simultaneously recognise the collaborative spirit of art-making, as well as the importance of our individual, often isolated, artistic journeys. Simultaneously, we come together to explore new and old, languages of communications, conversations, and storytelling. We connect, create, celebrate!

In the midst of the everyday chaos that ensues our lives, Should Art has become that cultural compass to realign ourselves, where imagination leads experimentation and fluid thought flourishes. Building towards becoming South Asia’s flagship art and culture festival, we present work that is multidisciplinary, experimental, and independent. Immersing in a three week-long celebration (through performances, immersive exhibitions, workshops, terrace bazaars, podcasts, and food), visitors, participants, and artists, will find wonder, joy, and hope.

This November, let’s come together to Connect. Create. Celebrate.
