Artists come from India and around the world to engage in our carefully developed programmes which run in partnership with respected NGOs, schools, foundations and museums.
We have seen time and again how even a short engagement can build participants' confidence and self-esteem. Our Teaching Fellowship and Artroom programmes can change the course of a life.
Artreach India is a charitable trust headquartered in New Delhi.

RECENT & ONGOING PROGRAMMES
AXIAL MARGINS, Community Arts Project: Women at the Urdu Park Night Shelter, Jama Masjid continue their creative engagement facilitated by Revue (Sreejata Roy , Mrityunjay Chatterjee) since 2015. They are making vibrant murals within the shelter space, paintings of everyday food on canvas and keeping mixed-media recipe books.
The women are homeless and support multiple children on as little as Rs. 300 a week earned from begging. Despite these odds they remain engaged with their art practice finding it offers them space for reflection and strengthens their sense of community.
"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.
