Prem Krishnamurthy: Department of Transformation
Join us for a presentation of Department of Transformation with Prem Krishnamurthy.
Department of Transformation (D🌎T) is an artist-organized group that mobilizes the power of art and design towards individual, collective, and structural transformation. Engaging with the entangled crises of our times, D🌎T fosters interdependence and mutual support between artists towards achieving common goals.
