Fuzzscape is a multimedia project, wherein a team of creative professionals travels to explore the artistic culture and the society of different locations around Nepal. They collaborate with artists from within the communities they visit to develop a body of work inspired by their interaction with the people, space, and its culture. The traveling artists learn about the communities they visit through the sharing of stories and ideas and create new artistic experiences together. 

The project was awarded the Contemporary Take, Beyond Cultural Heritage grant announced jointly by Prince Claus Fund and the British Council. the project grantees travelled to the Nepali cities of Bhojpur, Janakpur and Manang—located in the hills, the Tarai and the mountains of Nepal respectively—and produced three documentaries and three music-videos through collaboration with young artists from the locations.
