Inspiration

In today’s day and age art is often referred to as ‘art’ and perceived as an elitist pursuit, both for patrons and practitioners. It is largely confined within galleries and exhibitions which are usually inaccessible to the common man. At the same time many artists lose out on reaching across to audiences beyond the small already art aware group of people. It is however always a fulfilling experience for both audience and the artist when they get to connect. Inspired by this experience, The Project Café aims to bring art closer to the purview of the general public by creating a common platform of interaction for both artists and the common man. In order achieve this we use food and the café space as a point of attraction. Our visitors are not just served with delicious food also with an exciting array of diverse art and design.

Introduction

Wherever the eyes go, they see expressions, imagination and creations frozen in suspended animation; having just been in bustling traffic, imagine stepping into such world for real. Brilliant white walls adorned with fantastical canvases and wall-art, bathed in soft light from the lamps hanging off the ceiling. And as you negotiate the floors peopled by myriad finely crafted furniture and tableware the rich aroma of fresh brewed coffee and gourmet cooking rouses all your senses to their peak anticipation.

Welcome to The Project Café, Ahmedabad. Located along one of the main arterial roads of the city, the property is fondly called the ‘Peelo bunglo’ in Gujarati by the city folks owing to the fact that it is the only fully bright yellow building along the entire stretch of that road, making it a highly recognizable landmark of the city.
