The sounds and lights of urban Karachi and the colors and chaos of Miskeen Gali, surround it. Commune Artist Colony founded by Yousuf Bashir Qureshi is a creative gathering space for talented artists, filmmakers, musicians, fashion designers or for any other aspect of visual and performing arts. The agenda is promotion of visual and performing arts and strengthening of the artist community in Karachi and beyond. Commune provides an alternative exhibit and performing space to artists as well as a platform for discussion. The colony in Miskeen Gali aims to become a center point for art and art related activities. Interactive studios, exhibits & performances are a regular feature at Commune.
