Fostering the art of
Impact Storytelling

Creating awareness about climate change is the need of the hour, and one effective medium of doing this is through visual communication tools like photography and filmmaking. Films and photographs have the ability to engage us both emotionally as well as socially.

By incorporating climate change and other relevant themes into films, there is potential for the creation of a new dimension to the spread of scientific ideas by sparkling citizen interest and simultaneously inspiring audiences to further engage in broader discussions on the issue itself.

THE STAY:
Vivenda dos Palhacos

Vivenda dos Palhacos is a one hundred year old, carefully renovated house, set in a quaint village of Majorda, in South Goa.

The villa has three quite distinct atmospheres - a modest Portuguese Mansion, the older Hindoo house and the main garden.

Set far off the beaten track, the villa offers the perfect space to experience tranquility amidst the rural side of Goa, surrounded by church bells, blue skies and coconut groves.
