to be in perpetual dawn is to be in a place of new beginnings. The exhibition is a place where we come together and re-imagine generational and societal narratives.

We are the ancestors of the future, and it is important for us to be conscious of the stories that we pass on. How are we letting go of narratives that limit us individually and divide us collectively?

Kairos is an organization that curates events, such as workshops, poetry sessions, and experimental exhibitions.

At its heart, Kairos is passionate about decolonizing creativity and re-imagining art spaces as communal spaces. Putting these motives to practise, Kairos curates cultural events such as workshops, open stages, and experimental exhibitions. Each event is designed to be communal; they are a soft space to share inspiration.

While the spaces are open to everyone, this organization is focused on expanding marginalized representation and creating intersectional cultures.

The meaning of the word kairos (n.) describes the delicate perfectness of time and place that allows for certain movements and words to happen.
