Who are we

#IAmBuddha Foundation

#IAmBuddha is a movement which aims at exploring and bringing out the creative wealth and help make India an ‘Innovation Hub’ thriving on ideas & creativity.

#IAmBuddha Foundation aspires to channelise and institutionalise ‘Jugaad’ and ‘unconventional ideas’ and therefore start a creative revolution.

#IAmBuddha believes that like there can’t be life without breath, the life can’t have any meaning without creativity.

 

School of Creativity

School of Creativity is our dream project where we nurture creative thinking.

We believe nobody is born uncreative. It’s the education system, job market and the dynamics of an exploitative system that, by design, makes our minds dull and uncreative. The world is moving rapidly towards an ‘idea revolution’ and it’s critical that we retrain minds to become creative, again.

School of Creativity is one such idea. It has no place, no curriculum, no exam, no time frame and no degree. Its’s an open-ended, free flowing mentoring where we mentor bright and needy minds and prepare them to become innovators, creators and ideators. Age is no bar as we believe a creative mind is always young and fresh.

As our first endeavour, we will pick five creative minds and mentor them in “Unconventional Filmmaking”. These selected creative minds will work on Mr. Vivek Agnihotri’s upcoming film, right from scripting to marketing stage. After being mentored in a professional and hands-on environment, these creators will be qualified filmmakers who will break rules and and be able to start a creative journey in the art of filmmaking.

We will also select five actors who have never been featured in any organised work and mentor them to begin their journey in the world of performing arts. These actors will work in Mr. Vivek Agnihotri’s next film and will be mentored by national award-wining and highly acclaimed actor Ms. Pallavi Joshi.

The selection process will begin in August 2017 and the selected students will start working from October. If you think you are the one, please fill this form and tell us why you should be mentored by ‘School of Creativity’.
