CONA facilitates direct access to students and interested audience to interact with mentors and practitioners from various disciplines. Understanding various processes, realised/unrealised projects through direct interaction is the need of the hour, apart from the knowledge gained through existing institutional or gallery spaces. Collaborative Projects aim at organising talks and workshops with the help of institutional tie-ups through a short-term collaboration. Such projects also help CONA form a database for further research towards building its future programmes including Mentorship programme/Classroom situation.
In the past, CONA has collaborated with various organisations including Gasworks, Creative India Foundation, Creative Time Summit, IFA, Japan Foundation and Pro Helvetia Swiss Art Council.
