Site is the extension of Rachaita creative solutions which has been catering to the artistic and architectural disciplines since 1999. Having worked with artists and architects we understood the need for a residential studio facility so that they could engage in their creative pursuit continuously without any constraints. Also since many ambitious and cutting edge creative projects fall flat owing to improper technical support, we decided to extend our expertise and share with artists and creative people so that such significant projects become reality.
Site is envisioned as a fluid space where all sought after creative experiments can happen. Apart from residencies and studios we plan to conduct lectures and seminars to bridge the gap between critical theory and practice. With open studios for residency artists and regular shows in our gallery we think that a creative culture based on interaction can be made possible. With curated shows at regular intervals we wish to engage the society with issues and ideas which are current and significant.
On site facility:
Lathe, Drill, Argon welding, Electric welding(aluminum, stainless steel, mild steel, brass, copper), Cutter machine, Grinder machine, Pipe bending machine, Air compressor, Buffing machine, Flexible grinder.
