The Rural Fellowship

The Rural Fellowship

Take the road less travelled

The rural fellowship aims to connect the youth with the existing craft traditions of India, where they build a shared understanding, become a part of the process of creation and inspire change in the lives of the artists.

This collaborative programme provides selected fellows the opportunity to travel to craft clusters, be a part of the artists’ daily lives and assist in capacity building across disciplines.

Impacting lives through stories

The Storytellers Collective is a community-arts program which involves recruiting and training 10 young students from colleges / universities as Peer Educators through an in-depth apprenticeship training under Master Artisans; the development of an 8-month curriculum based on traditional storytelling which would be implemented across various shelter homes, community school centres for at-risk children and youth; and building a repertoire of visual narratives which have a social or cultural relevance to the communities to which the youth belong and those which can be developed into effective educational aids.
