Grundlos Kollektiv: A Home For Creative Minds @ ttff/18

Grundlos Kollektiv (founded by Johanna Nahous) is a platform for progressive minds of any field or discipline, who are passionate about introducing new ideas, concepts and perspectives – being socially or politically influential with their art form, whatever it may be.  Currently managed by Culturego Magazine, Grundlos Kollektiv is an inviting, enabling and flexible open-plan space in the center of Port of Spain. It is a home for a community of minds – different and alike – to create (Art exhibitions, film screenings, fashion shows, discussions, educational talks, yoga classes, social events) and to share their work with a diverse audience.

ttff has partnered with Grundlos Kollektiv to present:
