With February came the onset of spring, and the thawing of our winter bones brought some hustle back to the Art for Change office. We launched some programs which we hope to carry through to the end of the year. Here’s a brief look into what kept us busy in February!
Our first ever Artist’s Studio Tour took us through lanes of Chattarpur and Ghitorni. A well spent 2 hours included stopping by 3 artists stations, hearing them talk about their journey, and having a closer look at the context for the art they create. Thanks to Red Moon Bakery for their season special - HOLI cookies! (If you'd like to join us for our next Tour on March 17, shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org)
Those of you who know us, know that we make available for purchase the work of young, emerging artists as part of our Affordable Art campaign! So we were thrilled to be part of Metro Delhi International School’s annual Spring Gala! Fun, food and art out in the sunshine – what’s not to love!
“Art is about expression, rather than something...regulated.” Geeta Mondol said that and invited us to do a bunch of workshops with the staff of Ashish Foundation for the Differently Abled. What we got was an enthusiastic bunch that didn’t need any goading but jumped right in with spirited expression – the perfect prescription for a day of fun.
We hope you had just as fruitful a February as we did.
Here’s to an even better March.
Cheers from the Art for Change Team!
