Atma for Dharavi Art Room's MusicWallahs

Art Room utilizes the medium of art to empower children and women of marginalized communities. We believe that exploring, expressing and exchanging ideas through art creates confidence and stimulates personal growth. Art Room promotes a unique and fun community participatory approach which enables the community to take control over their lives.

The absence of positive educational and extracurricular activities for children in marginalized communities leads to lack of safe spaces and resources with which to explore personal and neighbourhood issues through artistic mediums. This narrows exposure and communication between groups in society, perpetuating negative stereotypes and constraining opportunities to shape one’s life.

MUSICWALLAHS  bring music to the lives of children in Dharavi. We believe that no child should be deprived of access to music education. Music is food for the soul, it inspires imagination and, creativity, brings joy and hope, as well as other significant social and intellectual benefits. Through music, children can find a way to express their emotions and channel their energies into something positive and creative.

Your  moneys  will  help  us  with  buying  equipments,  reading  materials,  space  costs,  and  a  possible  performance.

Please  contribute  as  well  as  share  with  more  like  minded  people.

Peace  and  love.

Dear Supporters, 

We are happy to report that 30 children at Dharavi Art Room are learning music, thanks to your support.

Dharavi Art Room has purchased a few guitars and a couple of drum sets for the children’s training. Music classes are conducted once or twice a week for a duration of 2 hours. 

Many musicians from Mumbai volunteer to teach these children to sing, play basic chords and learn chord progressions.

The kids are thoroughly enjoying the process and look forward to learning something new every week. Volunteers at Dharavi Art Room plan to purchase a couple of ukuleles in the following month. 

They thank you for your support and invite you to visit the art room and engage with the children and their lives. 

Thank you.
