KAYA|Project Public Art exhibits public art in public spaces in Kathmandu every two years. Every year we have two special events around the topic of Public Art and Public Sphere. It’s a private foundation initiated by a Kathmandu dweller who understands the ever changing landscape of Kathmandu. On the verge of gentrification, and other political transformation, Kathmandu requires a selfexpression of urbanity and dwelling. This foundation gives agency to the ordinary citizens to define their public sphere in the long run through it’s forum and active advocacy.
