The number of Sikhs pursuing careers in the creative arts has grown considerably over the last decade. More and more Sikhs are using art, music and visual mediums to express themselves particularly in the west where annual events provide them with a platform. In this upcoming documentary, I met a number of prominent Sikhs to discover what drives them and to ask if this is a Renaissance for Sikh Art.

Excerpt from 'The Renaissance' with Kanwar Singh Dhillon aka @artofpunjab Several years ago, I travelled around North America and met a bunch of deeply inspiring artists to ask them how and why Sikh Art was emerging in such a powerful way. 'Renaissance' was shown live in Toronto, California and London and will be online to watch for free June 7th. Grateful for everyone who was involved in it way back when: @naujawani @loveleen.kay @jsternweiner @sunmits
