BlueJackal was born in 2015 of a desire for, as well as the ever receding possibility of, togetherness. We see coming together with all its temporariness, contradictoriness, conflict as well as possibilities. As writers, artists, researchers we have often felt compelled by and yet wary of what constitutes the 'limits' or the defining borders of our callings. We have realized both, the need to draw these strategic boundaries and the will to dissolve them. BlueJackal is a platform for exploring this conundrum in its creative, political and philosophical dimensions. We are interested in seeing what 'contamination' and 'cross breeding' through unforeseen associations can bring to this platform.
