Responding to an urgency for materialising and facilitating individual and collective
expressions of shared concerns and
understanding, NELB is an
address for a shared call for action in the Northeastern states of India.




What initially began as an Instagram platform back in 2016, NELB gradually developed to be a collective of artists working in tandem towards exploring ideas of normality and confronting erasure of perspectives.





Since its conception, NELB has aspired to create work that engages hyper-local communities through values of transparency, inclusivity and accessibility towards visual arts, that aid in a sustainable future.





NELB aims to facilitate more accessibility towards visual art in the public realm as well as generate new audience. In the process, NELB seeks to cultivate inclusive spaces for dialogue and exchange between audiences and practitioners through workshops, residencies and seminars. At the same time, NELB seeks to bring art directly into the public realm through public actions, interventions and exhibitions.
