Aryan was part of the core team that built Artreach from its earliest days. He left us a year ago to pursue his own practice and projects. So happy to see him as one of the 90 or so artists of the KMB 2018 with his moving work Sweet Maria Monument.

Together the team is imagining and creating a mural exploring diversity, gender and caste by creating their own playful ‘skins’ for animals, presenting new ways of looking at the world.

Kicking off 2019 with these inspiring stories from artist @birender5700 's ongoing engagement at the brick kiln sites of Mirzapur, UP. Over the months, a close bond has grown between participants and they now eagerly await these workshop sessions - 'After all the fired things came out, the kids were so surprised by what they had made! The carts were moving, the pen stands and bricks with faces looked beautiful and the kids collected their own work with so much delight. They rushed home to show their parents and keep their objects safe. For the first time they had their own toys and things that they could look after and be proud of. They all said that they want to create more such objects and keep having classes everyday. Even their parents said they want the children to do this everyday!'

Old spaces - New dreams : The truly spectacular mural painted by 18 children on the main wall of Tarang school, Jonapur over this weekend has already started impacting the community. Residents and students have a renewed interest in the learning space with new ideas and a desire to participate come alive. The village has no water supply and negligible greenery - integration of these elements has added a positive thrill! @srishtiranamenon @lavudii #wallpainting #youngatart
