Glimpses from our Ongoing Programmes
Teaching Fellowship 2019-20 :
Artist Tahsin Akhtar is leading our 5th Teaching Fellowship for 2019-20. Through the Fellowship, Tahsin will mentor a group of 20 students from Tara Homes in Delhi. The year-long engagement will include regular art workshops and field trips, culminating in an exhibition and catalogue. He will be introducing them to the fundamentals of learning art, and will build upon those to introduce animation and digital media.
The programme is supported by Kiran Nadar Museum of Art (KNMA).
Volunteer Residency at SAN-KER, Shillong :
Over two intensive days in August, Ita Mehrotra from Artreach India team worked with twenty participants both from SAN-KER center at Shillong and from Reach NGO. Participants made beautiful nature studies, collective drawings in teams and their first comics based on super powers that would let them achieve their dreams, that ranged from saving children to having flying horses that could ride them anywhere!
We are grateful to Dr. Sandy and his team for hosting and assisting us lead the workshop and to Khublei for making this happen.
SAN-KER is a Shillong based charity that provides mental health care for all. Reach NGO works with children off the street. This workshop was in partnership with Khublei.
"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.
