Conversations on Creativity: Every month, an artist is invited to make an informal presentation centered on her/his creative practice. Artists, making use of different media and styles come to talk about their field of work.
Life Matters: Life Matters is a series of guided conversations based on Buddhist philosophies. Refraining from being a religious activity, the program is primarily organized to celebrate and talk about the spiritual idea in Buddhism.
