Imagining Our Future Together is a juried group exhibition organized by The World Bank featuring 25 young and emerging artists from 8 South Asian countries: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

The concept of the exhibition comes from the realization that cooperation among the countries of South Asia is the key to the region's success in the 21st century. And what better example of transcending borders and breaking stereotypes can be seen than in art created by emerging artists, some of our society.s most perceptive, creative and genuine minds?

Imagining our Future Together is an opportunity to communicate your experience, feelings and thoughts as visual artist to the rest of the world.

"South Asia will be richer and better if young people get to know each other and discover how much they have in common, how much they can share and learn from each other. As regional cooperation is gaining traction, creative artistic expression has a huge role in bringing about social and cultural change by connecting the young artists across the region."
