Co-founder of the Unbox Festival, India and Quicksand, a multi-disciplinary innovation consultancy.

Babitha will talk about exploring and celebrating creative collaborations. She will draw from a variety of experiences including the creation of the UnBox Festival where people are invited to engage in co-creating interdisciplinary experiences, and not just consume them as spectators and listeners. At the festival, pioneers and change-makers spanning diverse fields, from India and the world, act as catalysts for collaborative constructs at the intersection of design, culture, technology and enterprise.
