Vedant for Dharavi Art Room

Ask for an update


Hello,  my  name  is  Vedant,  I  am  a  student  in  a  school,  few  months  back  i  came  across  the  exciting  work  that  Art  Room  Foundation  is  doing  in  Dharavi  and  other  similar  neighbourhoods  with  children using  art  as  a  medium  of  change.  This  is  my  simple  small  way  to  contribute  towards  this  grand  venture.

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.

We  use  art,  photography,  craft  and  story-telling  to  enhance  life  skills  and  community  building.  Participatory  art  becomes  a  basic  medium  of  exchange  within  and  outside  the  community.

Over  the  past  ten  years  we  have  reached  6000 plus  beneficiaries  and  partnered  with  30 plus  organizations  and  institutions.

Like  our  last  year,  this  year  too,  we  plan  to  work  with  1200 plus  children.  Cost  per  child  to  go  through  a  series  of  art-based  activities,  including  picnics  and  a  library,  comes  to  INR 3000  per  year.

By  contributing  here,  you  have  the  opportunity  to  create  a  colourful  childhood.

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

Peace  and  love.
