Roadtrip Experience Project is a travel experiment that brings artists, musicians, designers, filmmakers, storytellers, impact makers, culture shifters and doers from diverse creative backgrounds on a journey to connect, collaborate and create art, films, music & impact projects on a Roadtrip.
Over the past 4 editions of the journey, RTX has traveled to North East India, Lahaul & Spiti, Sri Lanka & Vietnam. Enabled over 80+ collaborations, brought together a tribe of over 80+ doers and made over 10+ projects happen on the road.
As part of the Art Project, 30+ artists collaborated to paint an art mural in collaboration with a low-income community of moms & school-going children. The intent was to remind them that education is fun and going to school is important. The mural was painted on a huge wall by the sea which also happened to be the passage for the kids to go to school.

The Beachhouse Revival Project brought 30 creators from around the world to create a WIP #travel residency in Tangalle, Sri Lanka. The intent of the project was to create a sustainable revenue stream for an old couple who lost their restaurant (one of the famous beachside club established in 1984) and resultantly there livelihood during the Tsunami of 2004.

Shot and produced within the first 3 days of arriving in Colombo as part of the Roadtrip Experience Project, this photography project is a fleeting contribution by 4 photographers
towards reviving the martial art form in today's day and age.
The four photographers from India - Riddhi Parekh, Dhruv Sethi, Farhan Hussain and Suraj Katra collaboratively charted out the plans with the help of the Angampora practitioners and the creative RTX crew.
While flying from Mumbai to Colombo, Gowri Jayakumar (Muscian) was inspired by the clouds outside her window. She went on to create a dedication to the city of Colombo by producing a Soundtrack in 3 days. She collaborated with Ronit Sarkar - a sound engineer, Sankha Bee - a Sinhalese lyricist, Dylan - an Australian rapper with Sri Lankan Roots, Julius Mitchell - A Mad Beatboxer & Mike - a freestyle poet from New York, now living in Colombo.
Track coming out soon.
Poornima Sukumar was inspired by the Fishermen in Dawki, Meghalaya. The main profession of the village is fishing and men of the house spend their entire day sitting in canoes to catch fish. She collaborated with Sadhna, Abhishek, Madhu & Jerry to realize this beautiful and simple idea with a local fisherman.

Every RTX Project invites local creators from the country it is visiting. Apart from the eclectic blend, it also creates unique creative connections and brings relevance to the projects travelers create. In the past, RTX has collaborated with over 80+ local creators. Locals are also the best maps.

It was an incredible chance to meet people from different walks of life, but with the same purpose.
RTX is what you need when you have a creative block or any doubt. It does not give you answers but a refreshing energy of self confidence.
It's a metaphysical journey that begins on the road, ends inside your mind and stays in your heart.
