Slam Out Loud: Bringing the power of arts to ALL children


SLAM OUT LOUD

uses art forms like poetry, storytelling, theatre, and visual arts to help children from disadvantaged communities find their voice and express agency.

We work with professional artists to help children to build socio-emotional learning and leadership skills. So far we have worked with 100 artists and 6500 children across India.  

The diverse group of children and youth that we work within these communities discover their voices through the transformational power of the arts enabling them to dream bigger, achieve more and create the future.

 Using artistic creative expression (poetry, storytelling, visual arts and theatre) programs, we strive to consciously build 21st Century skills,  socio-emotional learning, expression and mindfulness across youth and children.

THE PROBLEM        
While we continue to live in a time where dreams for the children from low-income communities are largely limited to the security of employment, we believe that something as fundamental as finding our voice, being able to express oneself should not be limited to the privileged class.



A well-rounded educational experience that includes the arts is closely linked to academic achievement, social and emotional development, increased motor skills, language development, better decision making, visual learning, inventiveness, cultural awareness, increased focus and confidence and fostering values of collaboration, perseverance, and accountability.

WHERE WE HAVE COME
45+ workshops with 1500 children in the urban slums of Delhi Every Month 

WHO WE ARE
In their work with disadvantaged children, two Teach For India (TFI) fellows, Jigyasa Labroo and Gaurav Singh, in Dec 2014 founded SOL in an attempt to extend hands, heads, and hearts into creating a collective of powerful voices. We are now a team of 6 members on the core team and 30 artists in Delhi.

Dear Supporter,


Voice For All is Slam Out Loud's imperative to build creative confidence in children using community-led and technology-enabled art education.

Through VFA, children create and share original artwork upon completion of tech-based courses that are interactive, accessible in regional languages, free of cost, and adaptable to context. Art Melas provide an opportunity to showcase this art as well as the children's learning. With Pratham as our distribution partner, our first theatre course has been launched in 950 villages across Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Maharashtra reaching out to 50,000 children.

We recently completed recording our poetry course in Ismailpur in Unnao with children from the villages. Through the 3 days, children from Ismailpur and Semri got an opportunity to understand poetry as an art form, practised writing it and through a village level showcase, presented it to the elders in the village.

We are excited to see the course being launched in all the villages and looking forward to seeing children use poetry towards change.

Here are few glimpses from our 3 days.

Your support has helped us reach children across different geographies and bring to them the transformational power of arts. And we are so grateful for it.

Feel free to write to us with ideas, suggestions or feedback.

Dear Supporter,

Thank you for being part of our journey.
We are so excited to share that the fourth cohort of fellows for our flagship program, The Jijivisha Fellowship has been inducted and placed in 40 learning spaces across Delhi-NCR.

Over the past two months, we came across some of the most passionate artists from the fields of performance and visual arts, dedicated to bringing their art forms into classrooms and enabling our vision even further.

The diverse set of fellows will be impacting over 1000 children, through a period of one year. The children will thereby receive 108+ hours of arts-based learning per year as opposed to <20 hours in schools and build the skills that will help them thrive.




We're so grateful for your support in our journey, and hope that the coming year brings with it more learning and joy than ever!

Love and gratitude,
All of us at Slam Out Loud

Dear Supporter
Thank you for being a part of our journey. We are excited to share that, in an attempt to bring the power of the arts to children in some of the remotest parts of our country, we have created a tech-based, interactive e-curriculum, Voice for All, which has been launched in Uttar Pradesh. It is accessible in regional languages, free of cost, and applicable in various contexts throughout the country. We have partnered with Pratham to spread these resources to rural areas, and our first theatre course has been launched in 950 villages. While this is a reason to celebrate we require your support and generosity to take Voice for All and our other projects forward.
