Andre Tully is the founder of Nothing Regular Media and Entertainment, a Mumbai-based independent agency focussed on developing platforms for creative and cultural industries in India. Nothing Regular Media and Entertainment aims to provide strategic partnership for creative projects in India, such as India’s first international tattoo convention – Heartwork Tattoo Festival and the networking platform for the creative industries – EARS on Mumbai.
Nothing Regular also set up The Mumbai Assembly in 2016 to support the creation of innovative work, artistic development and creative dialogue. This initiative provides project space for the development of original productions and an independent venue which offers experimental performances. The programming is planned across diverse art forms and includes performances, exhibitions, screenings, workshops, an incubation space and platforms for discussions. The programming is carried out from a re-adapted community recreation space located in Mumbai. It aspires to be a node for arts and culture related activities with a focus on artistic, educational and critical, which would enable connections, collaborations and crossovers.
To develop greater connections between creative industries professionals in and between Asia and Europe, Nothing Regular brought the Europe-Asia Roundtable Sessions (EARS) to India. In 2018, the second edition of this conference will be held in Mumbai. This platform for networking and potential collaboration is aimed to build concrete partnerships between creative professionals.
Andre has over 20 years experience in strategic business development, managing large-scale live events and festivals in India and internationally, and building connections between talent and business in the arts and entertainment sectors.
Prior to this, he has worked with major Indian media brands like The Times of India and with international media organisations like Viacom 18 Media Pvt. Limited, gaining a wide range of experience in content creation, licensing of intellectual properties and strategic partnerships in the business of media and entertainment.
