It is a time of unprecedented struggle for our world at large. 
Every day’s headlines make our hearts sink deeper. 

Is there another way to chronicle this current moment beyond the regurgitation of dismal media narratives? 

Jaaga is committed to helping our artist communities capture these trying times through visual expression.

As a non-profit organization that is at the helm of supporting creatives to address urban issues through researched arts and design practice for over more than a decade, we are stepping up to the need of the hour.


We launch a fundraiser campaign to support the creative practice of artists and craftspeople who have been deeply affected by the wrath of the current moment.


Our mission is to actively garner support for Karnataka’s artist community that has come together to respond to the times, under the curatorial theme of “Uncertainty”. By challenging themselves to create large-format woodcut prints extending eight feet tall and four feet wide, the artists hope to immerse and express themselves to stay productive in body and mind.


With more than 130 Karnataka-based artists across generations, expertise, and locations who have raised their hands to participate, this effort represents a true coming together of artists responding through their practice to the current moment. 

With the generous support of space from Karnataka Chitrakala Parishath, the artists look forward to showcasing their efforts to the public when it is safe to do so. 


Thank you for helping us make a difference!
