Prabhaav is a rural immersion program that focuses on understanding traditional design, and artisans in the village of Banavasi, Karnataka.
This program gives participants an opportunity to look into questions such as -
What can I understand from the villages of our country?
How can I be more self-aware and make responsible decisions?
How can I make an impact within and in my surroundings?
Prabhaav is about learning beyond boundaries. Through various discussions, activities, interactions and facilitated reflections, it is an inquiry into rural ecosystems, indigenous art forms, artisans, dynamics of rural-urban collaborations and so on. It is a place to develop new perspectives, learn and contribute to others’ learning. It is an opportunity to observe, learn and understand through questions and a space to seek answers.

Architectural education has become very predictable and events like these extend the learning outside the four walls. Unbind's hands-on approach and dialogue way of learning becomes very important and they're doing a good job and I hope they organize more such events!
The whole experience has been so professional and I'm extremely proud of the team! It never once felt like they were a group of youngsters.
This is a great initiative where all forms of art are on display and it helps students choose what path they want to take in future.
