Ms. Sonal Kapoor, CEO- Protsahan India Foundation also praised the program and said, “Protsahan is a youth-based international non-profit organization that uses the innovative approaches of design, art, stories, photography, theatre and cinema to herald sustainable social change. Our partnership with PVR NEST for Cineart 2012-13 has been an exciting journey of bringing change by sensitizing young minds on the issue of road safety through innovative educating platforms and not mere textbook theory. It’s good to work with a CSR partner that cares."
The event was organised in association with French Embassy and other partners like Michelin Tyres, Tata Jaguar, Bajaj and Total. It witnessed an interesting display of creative art works by children at various events organized by PVR Nest throughout the long-term program.
