January 15, 2022

Avant Garde explores the need for encouraging divergent thought processes, especially in changing times where change is the only constant. The set conventions are being put aside as more and more people dare to step out of the norms. In such a case, it is necessary that we evolve our ideas and adapt to the new normal to keep up with the times.
