Ketemu (Project) started in 2011. As established artists, we felt uncomfortable with our work only reaching the commercial art market. We know that the arts can go further than that. Creatively, the arts can be used as a tool to deal with contemporary societal challenges.

In 2012 we began by working on a project involving a community of marginalised batik workers, The Wax on Our Fingers.

After a few years working on projects with schools and communities we see that there was a clear need for a new artistic platform; and to expand our practice by working with other established international artists. This is when we set up Ketemu Project Space and Ketemu Residency Programme.
