planb is a creative consultancy run by Bakul Patki – a specialist in curation, production and promotion across the arts. Bakul has over fifteen years of experience working in culture, media and entertainment from music, television and film, to art, design and architecture. She works independently for arts institutions, individual artists and galleries, arts festivals, charities and brands who have an interest in working within and supporting creativity.

Her independence as a freelancer means she is able to be nimble and flexible, approaching each project from a fresh perspective, tailoring her input accordingly. As and when a project requires additional staff, she calls on her extensive contacts, bringing on board the most appropriate specialist for that particular occasion. This broad contacts database and years of collaborating with the arts community and publications, also allows her to offer services and broker relationships beyond traditional press campaigns and to fulfil complex, unusual and challenging curatorial or production commissions.
