Our work is guided by the following principles:
Creativity & high quality — We work to produce programs featuring films, art, and stories that demonstrate excellence both in creativity and quality.
Dialogue — We aspire to create safe, respectful, and loving spaces for constructive dialogue around issues of race, gender, class, caste, religion, and sexuality. We welcome all viewpoints, in the spirit of challenging existing power structures. We strongly believe this type of dialogue fosters shared understanding.
Education — We strive to educate and inform the community through thought-provoking films, stories, and art.
Inclusivity — At Tasveer, we pride ourselves on inclusivity. “South Asia” covers Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, Tibet, Sri Lanka, and their diasporas worldwide, and we endeavor to represent everyone equally.
We aim to engage the community through films, storytelling, and visual art from South Asia and its diaspora to help change narratives, foster a deeper understanding of South Asian culture, and to build a just and sustainable society.
