Urdu Park Axial Margins
Grantee: Revue (Sreejata Roy and Mrityunjay Chatterjee)
Since March 2015 artist collective Revue has worked with 16 women at the SPYM Shelter in Urdu Park, Jama Masjid. The women are homeless and support multiple children on as little as Rs. 300 a week earned from begging. With Sreejata they have explored how they negotiate changes in their lives, how they adjust to Urdu Park and its environs, and how they cope with the pressures of living life in a public space. The project also looks at how the women deal with shifts in personal identity, their aspirations, fears, and vulnerabilities.
