Sumunum (pronounced samanam meaning encounter, welcoming, congruence, whole and equal in Sanskrit) Foundation, founded in July 2019, is a not-for-profit, focused on enhancing quality of life, and promoting wellbeing, through arts based interventions and practices.

We offer tailor-made interventions to serve clinical &/or vulnerable populations across settings (inpatient / outpatient).

Social development: Participatory theatre programmes aimed at stimulating public awareness, dialogue and engagement. Our programmes focus on fostering community cohesion and supplementing health & development activities.

Education: Offering arts based customised experiential learning modules focused on enhancing social-emotional skills in children. In addition, we conduct additional teacher training and skill building programmes.

Public engagement: Increasing access to and consumption of art in everyday life by curating performances/ lectures/ demonstrations/ installations / discussions /workshops in intimate &/or open and public venues.
