A group of 4 girls from Canadian International School chose Domestic Abuse as a research topic for one of their project works. The team conducted research, filmed, documented and designed a public awareness campaign to reach out to larger audience. Shreya, team point of the project chose art as a creative medium of expression to share her team’s findings. She decided to take this project to a public space to spread awareness, and approached Jaaga DNA to work with her. We loved her enthusiasm and commitment, and supported the group in conceptualizing their artwork for public space.
