Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology, Bangalore was established in 1996 by the Ujwal Trust with the objective of providing art and design education in an environment of creativity to maximize the individual’s potential. The school promotes interdisciplinary platforms as a mode of inquiry and creative action. This applies not only to the disciplines of art and design but also to the social and natural sciences - pure and applied, cultural and contextual diversity, community and commerce, traditional and avant-garde.
- Vision of the school is “Education is beyond instruction and skill; that knowledge is inherently integrated and complex and, hence, learning must be embedded in real-world problems and situations”
- Mission of the school is “Facilitated by its organizational structure – a “community of learners” comprising industry-experienced faculty and energetic students who continually explore and experiment with art and design pedagogies, aesthetics, values and innovative practices”
- School offers undergraduate, graduate as well as Ph.D. programs. It offers design education in Digital Video Production, Film, Visual Communication, Experimental Media Arts, Design in Education, Textile Design, Animation and Visual Effects, Interaction Design, Product and Interface Design, Furniture and Spatial Design, and much more.
