We at Helm of Eight believe in the coming together of things that belong and are thrilled to invite you to our Flagship event - Jungle in the City.
Jungle in the City brings together the creatures of the city with the beings of the forest.
With equal participation from the Adivasis, Featured Artists, Facilitators and Humans of Bombay, this day will be experienced in shared oneness of all with nature. We request all participants and attendees to be respectful and conscious of this. The day will lead us through 3 parts of the forest - A nature trail, Chota Kashmir (park) and the Amphitheatre.
We have 3 initiatives planned in the Aarey Forest:
Alphabet Sambar, Beyond Issues and PaperWeight.
Ramya (Idea Smith)Poetry
We want this day to be accessible and open to everyone. All the artists, facilitators and curators have come on-board to show their support voluntarily. There is no compulsion to contribute but to keep our work alive, we need you. Payments can be made via Cash/PayTM.
Helm of Eight is a labour of mind and heart, a culmination and a beginning of experiences.
We are a Hybrid Incubator and Community Centre located in Mumbai (Andheri West).
The story behind the Helm is rooted in the cross-pollination of Knowledge, Art, Self Development, Human Resource Development, Enterprise, Social Impact and Technology. Human-centricity is at the core of all our work and the thread that ties them together.
We are dedicated to creating experiences to step-in and go beyond the everyday, and are constantly looking to challenge boundaries and experiment with the cross-section of these domains.
