Soon after our first event, on May, 2017 we collaborated with ‘ThinkArts’- an organization facilitating arts events for children and young adults. In this collaborative event our focus was on organizing a platform for young adults to share their original creations in their mother tongues with each other- be it writing, music, art or performance. Several young adults from various backgrounds participated. They shared their work as well as discussed each others’ works and provided feedback.

The collective of the participants then further discussed the motivations behind their creation, their approaches to writing or performing, their ideas on incorporating such creative endeavours within academic curriculum and why they feel the necessity to create something in the vernacular language. This collective became a space for future correspondences as well as they put forward suggestions on how to extend and nurture it through further projects.
