About The Speaker
Himanshuu Sheth an accomplished Photographer from India who has been working as a professional and commercial photographer for over a decade now with Africa. His photography journey has taken him through Kenya, Tanzania, Namibia, Rwanda & Egypt where he has worked extensively.
He graduated majoring in Scientific Photography from TAFE Australia, in 1997. After finishing his studies, he backpacked around Australia, Indonesia, Canada, America, Mexico, United Kingdom and Africa before finally coming back to Mumbai in 1998 and starting his professional career.
His extensive international travel helped him understand and absorb various cultures, places & people that has been instrumental in his unique style of work. His love for photographing the great outdoors – nature, wildlife, people, cultures and spaces – has inspired him to embark on a journey, creating detailed customised Photo safaris.
About Partners :
Avid Learning, the cultural philanthropy arm of the Essar Group founded in 2009 has, over the past decade, grown into one of Mumbai’s leading public programming platforms and is firmly entrenched in the country’s wider cultural ecosystem. Our thoughtfully curated and diverse events embrace the spirit of collaboration to bring together the best of Indian and international writers, artists, intellectuals, cultural experts, policymakers and industry leaders across Visual Art, Literature, Culture and Heritage, Education, Design & Technology and the Performing Arts through engaging and dynamic formats like panel discussions, workshops & master classes, roundtables, lecture demonstrations, festival platforms, symposiums & conferences, multidisciplinary performances and walkthroughs.
To date, AVID has conducted over 1400 programs and connected with more than 150,000+ individuals, a widely eclectic group of life-long learners including students, patrons, practitioners, influencers, thought leaders and cultural & creative enthusiasts in Mumbai, Delhi, Jaipur, Bangalore, Goa and Gujarat.
We have also made our mark internationally, with events and collaborations in Dubai and New York. We regularly collaborate and partner with institutions, organisations and initiatives like the National Gallery of Modern Art (NGMA), (CSMVS) Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI), one of the apex bodies that impact cultural policy and the creative sector as a whole. We have been at the helm of programming at the Royal Opera House, Mumbai India’s only surviving Opera House since its reopening in 2016.
We believe in the importance of arts for social change and we regularly offer our support and platforms for Social Advocacy. In April 2020, we launched AVID Online, an online further learning campaign on our social media platforms for our followers to engage with a range of varied topics across the breadth of the arts. Our eclectic faculty of experts, thought leaders, practitioners and innovators continue to share their learnings, expertise and knowledge on our social media platforms with tailored content featured weekly for AVID’s online community and beyond. In collaboration with long-term and new partners, we have since dimensionalised the campaign by re-introducing our existing offline formats and IPs and enhancing them for digital engagement. We have taken our content live with engaging masterclasses and virtual panel discussions and also built robust tangential campaigns and series in support of worthy causes and highlighting topical issues.
AVID continues to give truth to our belief that #LearningNeverStops!
