ABOUT THE ART & FLEA PROJECT
Art & Flea Project (since 2019) was founded by 3 friends, Disha Das, Sreenanda Ganguli and Sayanika Mukherjee. It is a sustainability platform promoting conscious consumerism and building capacity in Arts and Environment through workshops, eco-festivals and flea markets. The vision is to make sustainable living more accessible to the common person; we discover artists and brands working in the sustainability space and thrust them, so that the average population first gains access to these ethical, slow made alternatives before choosing an unethical, unsustainable, mass manufactured product. It is a practice in patience and empathy and we are very proud to say out loud that our community is getting larger and stronger.
SOCIAL is a path-breaking urban hangout that’s designed to take you offline while still keeping you connected. From an all-day café serving great food, coffee, and cocktails, SOCIAL transforms from this creatively charged, collaborative space into a high energy bar when work hours end, striking the perfect balance between work x play. Each outpost is a representation of the neighbourhood it resides in, from the pincode to the people. It’s a second home, workplace, and hangout, all wrapped up in one mind-blowing experience.
