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.






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.
