#UnmuteIndia: Gifting a Voice to our Children

Tax benefits
"I can strive to be an independent learner. I can search for my own boundless passion beyond the ranks and walls of this building called school ", shares Supriya - a young poet part of Slam Out Loud's programs for the past 4 years. Creative expression has enabled Supriya to #Unmute her voice - and speak her own truth to power.


We don’t want to just survive. Through our work, we want to create an immutable case that something as fundamental as finding our voice, discovering ourselves, and finding safe spaces for creativity, should not be limited to a privileged class. 


Supriya comes from a background where dreams are a luxury, but her story isn’t that of disempowerment. Supriya’s story, just like that of Muskan who wants to be a journalist, Abbas an aspiring writer, and Nitish, who wants to play football for an international league is a story of hope, a story of the transformational power of creativity and confidence. A story that’s built on the power of having a VOICE.

BUT

IS THIS OPPORTUNITY TO DREAM A REALITY FOR MOST CHILDREN IN INDIA? NOT WHEN THEIR VOICES ARE MUTED. 

THE PROBLEM:
According to the Economic Development Quarterly, children who received art education showed an 80% increase in creativity and levels of social skills. The National Endowment for the Arts observed that students partaking in arts courses had higher grades and were five times more likely to graduate compared to their peers. 

This is where Slam Out Loud comes in, to #UnmuteIndia.

HOW DO WE UNLOCK CREATIVE CONFIDENCE

We provide our children with access to art and artistic opportunities in visual and performance arts like Poetry, Storytelling, and Theatre.


Our initiative has been now selected as a case study by Harvard, OECD, World Bank Group, and HundrED.


Want more children to find their voice? Here’s where you come in!

Over the past few days, we saw a constellation of voices that gathered to support Slam Out Loud. If there is one thing that this campaign has shown us, it is that we all may be a drop in the ocean, but each drop really counts - YOU really count. As we extend our campaign to reach our goal of raising 80 Lakh to #UnmuteIndia, it is this thought we'd like to begin with.

Dear SOLmates,

Over the last five days, we’ve seen a mountain of love for the movement we’ve built to #Unmute children’s voices across the country. From the house of Slam Out Loud, here are some SOLful updates on what we’ve been upto:

1. Vaishnavi and Vanessa are two volunteer SOLmates at Slam Out Loud. They started volunteering sometime during the lockdown last year, giving more than 15-20 hours in a week - essentially meaning, all the time they were not attending their college, they were working with us. And not for money. Both of them have never met, apart from our Zoom team-huddles (that we did every day for the first four months of the lockdown) and in the last five days, after giving ALL of their time in the last 8 months to SOL, they chose to give again - through V&V for SOL to #UnmuteIndia.

We don’t know what love looks like, if not this.
 
V&V’s child campaign to support our fundraiser, has now surpassed its goal, but our campaign to #UnmuteIndia is live, and we need your support - now, more than ever.  

2. As our crowdfunding movement gets bigger and better, we're joined by more powerful voices from across the country who share our mission to #UnmuteIndia. Read on to know more.

> We celebrated our fourth birthday on 16th February with ‘Find Your Voice’, an Open Mic in collaboration with Hello World and SkillBox - featuring the beloved Rohan Joshi who hosted SOL artists and youth poets (aged 13-17) from 59 countries, sharing poems and stories themed around what it means to have a voice.

> The White Coat Poets, a collective of doctors who love words and poems, will host a warm evening featuring some beautiful poetry by their in-house poets and SOL's children!
When: 18th February, at 8:30 PM IST  

> On 19th February, join Slam Out Loud from 7-9 PM IST for BOL: A Fundraiser to #UnmuteIndia. Share space and words with the incredible poets Varun Grover, Hussain Haidry, Priya Mailk, Simar Singh, Ankita Shah, Gaurav Tripathi and Neha Bahuguna!
For a sneak-peek into Varun’s brilliant work, check out the video below!


> Spend the 20th of February with Slam Out Loud and some beautiful musicians including the singer/songwriter Tanmaya Bhatnagar and Jaisalmer Beats! Check out Tanmaya’s single, recommended by A.R. Rahman below and join us for an evening of SOLful music!


While all of you, our beloved donors, will receive free passes to join our events (on the email ID you donated with) - if you’d like your friends and family to join too, we invite you to urge them to donate to our mission!

P.S. Each rupee donated to SOL till midnight of the 17th February will be doubled through a matching donation made by our Impact Partners - Dalberg, Girl Rising and DailyHunt! Use your network for our net-worth (of goodwill). Share our campaign and invite everyone you know to our joyous events to help us reach our goal (which is now yours too!) faster. 

Love and light, 
Team Slam Out Loud
