As an artist-initiated organisation, the Kochi Biennale Foundation was founded on the conviction that art is essential in our society today. The dissemination of it, the teaching of it, the studying of it, the viewing of it. While the Kochi-Muziris Biennale is the flagship event, the Kochi Biennale Foundation also oversees a comprehensive Programmes division that organises, conducts and manages education and outreach initiatives throughout the year. These programmes include talks, conferences, performances, educational initiatives, workshops and other forms of wide public engagement.
