With over two decades of expertise in transformational projects that speak to local and global dynamics, Shalini Ganendra Advisory continues to grow transnational engagement and multi-disciplinary emphasis and cultural distinction.

The Advisory has developed and lead important platforms for multi-dispinary and trans-national engagement and exploration, developing meaningful and impactful cultural encounters.

“We have developed the idea of Cultural Entrepreneurship to include not only value creation through the development ad innovation of ‘cultural capital’ for positive social and individual impact, but also through trans-national and multi-dispinary dynamics for non-profit ad commercial benefit.”

Pioneering projects have been introduced to South East Asia, including the Gallery Weekend Kuala Lumpur, Residencies, Exhibitions and Education modules. The Advisory’s organisational objectives and philosophy support regional creators in the propagation and recognition of contemporary, “vernacular” languages and practices. 

The Advisory practise continues to grow an extensive and varied project portfolio, whether for private or institutional collections, cultural education, or community marquees, always appreciating the need for identity and clear narrative to succeed.
