St+art is built around the idea of breaking conventional and cultural barriers of art & art spaces through shared experiences. Akin to their visions, at Kairassi we believe that art ignites change. The consummation of our ideas gave us the opportunity to aid in the transformation of Kannagi Nagar, creating meaningful engagements that resonate with large sets of people, and giving our artists at Kairassi, access to a larger platform.
We worked with St+art to create our first wall mural, executed by a differently-abled artist. The mural design was executed and conceptualised by the multi-talented Antony Raj.
We truly believe in projects that unite communities and are grateful for the opportunity with St+art and their army of volunteers. Through the collaborative process of mural-making, we are breaking preconceived notions about the differently-abled community and instilling in our artists purpose and confidence.
Kairassi collaborated with design agency Rubecon Creative to launch Differently Designed - an initiative to create inclusive designs for socially conscious brands and individuals.

The organisers of TEDxChennai commissioned Kairassi to design the stage for the TEDx conference, held at Sir Mutha Concert Hall, Chennai.
The theme for TEDxChennai 2019 was If. Conceptually, the stage design featured the cosmos and constellations, symbolising infinite possibilities. We executed circular abstract panels by our artists Manas, Tanvi and Akash, representing the swirls and iridescent colours of the cosmos. The constellations were designed in our artist Swami's signature style, and also executed by our artist Antony.
Artists featured: Akash, Tanvi, Manas, Antony and Swami.
We worked closely with a couple who wanted to support our cause, to design the invitations for their special day. The art was customised to their specific requests.
Artist featured: Akash
