Design Clinic

The primary purpose of the R&D Cell at the School of Creativity is to develop collaborative research in design and creative practice through external partnerships and engagements. The external partnerships aim to collaborate with Industry, Academia, and Government on a global level for the creation, preservation and application of research and knowledge towards the betterment of society. Thus enabling us to take learning beyond the classroom and engaging students on real-world live projects that prepare them better for their careers. 

External Partnerships

External Partnerships involve activities on systematic fundamental enquiries to practice-based projects creating the possibility and emphasizing participatory design approaches leading to tangible outcomes. This would involve collaborations with

  • Industry
  • Government
  • Academic Institutions
  • Ngo’s



The project “कारीगरी” is a step towards Rural Reconstruction. By giving chance to rural women to hone their skills and earn a steady income, we want them to lead a better life. There is a massive gap at Indian grassroot level.
