Purva Damani, the Founder Director of 079 | STORIES, is an art enthusiast. She started her journey with Communications & Marketing at Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. Armed with interpersonal skills and coupled with a diploma in Human Resources and Marketing, she worked as a Human Resource Consultant in Mumbai before moving back to Ahmedabad.
Back in her hometown, and in an endeavor to create a platform to bring art and culture together and make it accessible to people, 079 | STORIES was conceptualized.
079 | STORIES was born out of a dream to create a cultural space in the city that caters to the need of design, art and creativity. Designed by Khushnu & Sönke Hoof- the partners of Pritzker laureate Balkrishna Doshi, 079|Stories unfolds itself as a promenade which houses an art gallery, exhibit cum workshop space and an amphitheatre.
