Udhbhav II, Community Arts Project:
Avinash Karn initiated 'Udhbhav', through Artreach India Community Grant in 2015-16, with the aim to bring Madhubani painting to tribal women of Chandidih Village, Jharkhand. Recently, he conducted a second round of 10 days residential workshop with 3 women, held at his studio in Varanasi. The Madhubani paintings that they created together tell intimate stories of life and work in the village, how they travel and also how they love to create these artworks.
"They come up the stairs, so scared in their hearts as they see the police station, then their fear disappears as
they see the paintings… they think, 'This is a place that will do something for children'."
Makaan Singh, a social worker at the contact point explains how the new children at the centre reacted to Artreach's mural.
