Living in the age of information overload, fake news and social media hysteria, there is an urgent need to rediscover and maintain a culture that is based on critical thinking, intelligent dialogue, discussion and debate.
It is crucial for us to create spaces for the sharing of ideas, views and opinions that may not agree with the mainstream view, but are instrumental in our evolution – as individuals, as a society and as a species.
Thus. is an organisation that looks to establish and encourage this culture by identifying and organizing venues and curating the presentation of ideas that are at the intersection of art, activism, innovation and inspiration.
The programs curated by Thus. explore and strengthen connections between artistic practices and social activism, political views and environmental realities; and encourage the publication of socially relevant themes through talks, presentations, film screenings, theaters, live gigs and performances.
Artists, musicians, social & cultural activists, writers, curators and journalists present their work and address the questions of the audience here. Thus. advocates an understanding of the arts as a language that empowers individuals and communities to utilize stories as agents for social change.
Thus. programs are designed to be contemporary, thought provoking and interactive.
